On a small South Carolina island, a dilapidated building known by locals as the "Grief Cottage" stands as a testament to a half-century-old tragedy, when a boy and his parents vanished during a hurricane. Eleven-year-old Marcus is sent to live on the island after the death of his mother and finds himself drawn to the cottage, eventually encountering a little boy that bears a strange resemblance to the one who disappeared decades ago.
