Rupert Evans, Derek Jacobi, and Natalia Verbeke star in this drama concerning a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who struggles to separate reality from fantasy after awakening disoriented and sick on a deserted Cuban beach. In the aftermath of a violent storm, Ali awakens on the sands of a picturesque beach with no memory of where he came from or how he got there. After making his way to the nearest town, the weary traveler makes the acquaintance of Manuela, a sensual dancer from nearby Havana. Despite the veiled warnings from her friend and suitor Guido, Manuela can't help but fall in love with the mysterious stranger. The situation grows complicated, however, when Ali's memory begins to return in a series of disturbing visions that reveal not only where he came from, but how he knows the man named Guido as well.
