Following a terrible boating accident, Thomas Bain and his entire crew were lost at sea, disappearing without a trace. 5 months later, Thomas washes up on a beach on the deserted coastline of the Scottish Island of Orkney, with no memory of how he survived. Specialist Psychologist Jeffrey Dalton is keen to investigate and uncover the truth behind Thomas's fantastic survival; but is this more personal than he's letting on?
The lines between man, myth and monster are becoming blurred...
The world has fallen into eternal darkness and despair, one man fights for his own survival against all odds. Written& directed by Douglas Kyle & Ashley Sabiston in their spare time (filmed over the span of two nights in 2016) in the old abandoned Kirkwall Library, Orkney, before it was revamped. No budget or funding, the entire project was created by the passion of the pair.
In Orkney folklore there exists a supernatural being known as the "HogBoon," - a creature who lives under the mounds of Earth and brings luck, good and bad, to farmers and their land. Following an air raid in WW2, a soldier finds himself with a strange connection to the mythical folklore being: it brings him good luck and long life, providing he keeps the creature fed.
Then a man from his past turns up on the islands, desperate to confront the mysterious Hogboon, and destroy decades of a fragile existence.
