Troubled by whispers of a strange tropical illness and rumors of a wild beast lurking onshore, the young sailors are desperate to steer the vessel to safety. With one of their own already missing and a strange smell drifting up from belowdecks, the novice crew begins to suspect that someone — or something — else is onboard.
