Tristan is an inaccessible island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, from which it is difficult to communicate with the continent. The inhabitants are hostile towards strangers, and make a mystery of the one night in the year known as the night of St. Jack. Four strangers arrive on the islands: Elena, Tom, Peter, Zeno. Olive, a woman from the island disappears, and shortly after, so does Elena. Olive's husband Billie incites the islanders to go against the new arrivals, which he accuses of being the murderers of the two women.
