Ten strangers are lured to a remote Scottish island at the invitation of a reclusive industrialist. 

Stranded on Lord Black’s wondrous estate, the disparate guests have more in common than they first realize.

Accused by a mysterious letter of having committed crimes in their past, one by one they are hunted down. But who is the killer? Will any of them live to find out?

Note: This modern re-telling of Agatha Christie's masterpiece draws inspiration from the remote gothic qualities of the Scottish highlands in homage to the classic whodunit.
