Despite their disagreements, Elias and Gabriel decide to seek out their natural father and set out to the island where their father lives. Meanwhile, a surprise awaits Elias and Gabriel there. Surrounded by the island’s many odd personalities Elias and Gabriel discover a most paralysing, yet liberating truth about themselves and their family.
