Storyline

Madison is a rebellious teenager who's spent most of her life moving around from boarding school to boarding school. Her personal relationships are limited and the only family she has left is her estranged stepmother, Patricia. So when Patricia suddenly shows up an invites her on a trip to St. Isabel (an island Madison used to visit with her Father) it comes as a complete surprise. Once on the island Madison meets Blake, a local guide. Blake plans a paddle board excursion and takes Madison to a remote part of the island. Once out in the ocean, Madison has a panic attack (or so it seems) and falls off her board and reportedly drowns. Miraculously, Madison survives the ordeal and somehow makes her way out of the remote jungle and back to the resort. Once she arrives, she's stunned to see Blake and Patricia together! When Madison goes looking for answers, she discovers that this vacation isn't what it seems, and that she's in fact embroiled in a dark conspiracy that involves her late ... Written by Anonymous

Better than expected
1 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a Lifetime type thriller it's pretty good. An orphaned teenager is brought to an tropical paradise for vacation by her stepmother who has an ulterior motive. The fight scenes look realistic, the scenery is pretty and the sets are not cheap looking. The story isn't too ludicrous and doesn't get out of hand like some of these TV movies can. Malese Jow from Vampire Diaries and the unfortunate 100 is good and convincing as Madison. She is a good actress and has a sympathetic likable face and doesn't look too made up or vain like many of today's actresses. Olivia D'Abo as the step mother looks unrecognizable from earlier roles.

Overall Worth a watch.
