Synopsis

One Night. One House. One Island. - A powerful, moving drama in which a lonely man, Jeremy (Colin Moy), returns to his elegant home to find it has been taken over by three homeless teenagers. On the run, their only objective is not to be torn apart by social services. Unwittingly they compel Jeremy to face the memory of his own lost son. But first he is forced to confront the explosive violence of 13-year-old Kenae (Calae Hignett-Morgan) and the sexual manipulations of his 17-year-old sister, Tibs (Hanelle Harris). Over the course of the night the tables are turned and a tenuous bond begins to grow between them. When dawn comes, so too does the law. Now, the four of them find themselves on the run together.
