It’s very early
Early morning on a perfect summer’s
day when a disparate bunch ofpeople begin to arrive at a seeminglyidyllic, secluded cove in order to enjoy some time at thebeach. There area couple of familieswith young children. One familyis accompaniedby a dog,the other bya granny. Also spending a day at that beach are an Algerian refugee. While the beach and gentle waters might appear inviting, there is actually something menacing lurking in the shadows of the shady cliffs. First they discover a pile of abandoned clothes down by the water’s edge, then thebody of a young womanis found floating in the cove. Most are quickto blamethe Algerian;the police are phoned but somehow fail to arrive. Something is deeply amiss down on that beach. Just as help seems never able to arrive,the group feel trapped on the beach, as if heldin place by some invisible force. And then time goes all screwy.
