A pair of 20-something friends from London, Kyle Connor (Joe Layton) and Paul Budgie Griffiths (Theo Barklem-Biggs) are travelling the world looking for sun, fun and adventure. Kyle even got himself a Maori-style tattoo, excited about their eventual destination: the Cook Islands.
When snorkelling in a lagoon, Kyle finds the body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater dead. Returning to the lagoon with the police, Kyle finds her corpse has disappeared. But Kyle knows what he saw.
Desperate to uncover what happened, Kyle and Budgie find themselves sucked deeper and deeper into a world of Maori myths, symbols, and hallucinatory visions... until finally the full meaning of Kyle s tattoo is revealed.
