There is no escape from a forgotten atoll in the middle of the Pacific. And there is nowhere to hide.
On a little atoll of the Tuamotu Islands, days by boat from Tahiti, Pukatapu only has ten inhabitants.

On a little atoll of the Tuamotu Islands, days by boat from Tahiti, Pukatapu only has ten inhabitants. Lilith, a photographer from Papeete’s local newspaper, La Dépêche, and her assistant, Maeva, a journalist, are sent there to report on the rising sea levels. As soon as she arrives on the beach, Lilith finds a severed hand in the sand. With an investigator’s reflex, she takes a photo of it before warning the community. But there is no body to be found on the island, and no one is missing.
Then Lilith’s camera disappears, along with the hand. The priest’s assistant and the hermit Tounarima are found dead and other human remains are discovered. Ten inhabitants, ten suspects. Or are they all accomplices?
Lilith and Maeva obstinately continue their report, knowing that in case of danger, someone will come for them before too long. On the island, everyone remains silent, but their consciences seem crushed by a dark secret. Those who dare to speak evoke a hell populated with monsters. Reigning over this aquatic hell is Miri, the chief’s daughter and a vengeful mother.
