A remote island, owned by a wealthy philanthropist who is building a brand-new world on the ruins of the old one.

Ben only came to the island to bring his fiancée Cara home. But when he arrives, he is rapidly seduced by the vision of a better way of life, as described by the charismatic and mysterious Sir John.

And his own life may be in terrible danger . . .
