When brothers Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) and Gabriel (David Dencik) discover they are in fact adopted, they travel to a remote island to meet their biological father and brothers for the first time.

Could it be their father was keeping a bizarre secret? Is there more to the brothers than they know themselves? And how is it all be connected to the strange animals that also live on the island?
