The jock, the cheerleader, the silent outsider – who will you be when the truth comes out? And no matter how you try to hide it, the truth will always come out.
After a plane crash sees a group of teens washed up on a desert island, their first thought is survival. But a terrible secret from a party the night before has followed them ashore – one of them has been the victim of an assault. Facing deadly threats and the fear of being stranded forever, they quickly discover that being the most popular kid in High School doesn’t help when you’re fighting to stay alive. As the island deals each of them a dangerous blow, it’s clear that someone is looking for justice. Now survival depends on facing the truth about that fateful party: who was hurt that night, and who let it happen?
As danger and lies begin to take over, can the island uncover the truth?
A survival story about the dangers of silence from multi-award-winning author and gender equality activist, Laura Bates, this thought-provoking drama will start an important conversation and keep you guessing to the end.
