Born and bred in a small seaside village in Northern Scotland, and now living in New York City, Peyton McClintock is headed to the serene Tahitian island of Moorea with Bryan, her self-confident, attractive and routinely cocky husband. Their romance has waned but Peyton is determined to re-vitalize the passionate connection they once had. When the couple find two sickly and seemingly abandoned dogs under their luxury beach bed, Peyton, a dog lover, quickly connects with the island's animal shelter. Later that night a mysterious hand- written note appears in the couple's hotel suite. Peyton is shaken by the threatening message. Bryan is nonchalant and brushes it off as someone's bad idea of a joke. Making matters more complicated, Peyton runs into Finn, her teen love interest from Scotland. Accompanied by his new fianc e and his sister, Finn is excited to see Peyton but is on the other hand, engaged to be married. When the owner of the two stray dogs is found dead on the beach, things start to intensify for Peyton, putting her own life and those closest to her in grave danger.
