Beatrice is going back home to Coral Island after decades away.


She’s starting her life over after her husband broke the news of his affair moments before their anniversary party and vow renewal.


His revelation derails her. Her children have left home and she’d always imagined she and her husband would travel and grow old together. But now he’s gone and she’s unsure of where her life is headed.


With nowhere left to turn, she goes home to Coral Island to visit her estranged father. She stays in an old beach cottage that was her family’s when she was a baby and finds a hidden roll of fifty-year-old undeveloped film. Who put it there and why?

Will she find answers & purpose on the island, rekindling old friendships and rediscovering a long-lost love? Or will she be driven back to the city and her failed marriage?
