The film revolves around a family of three living on an island in the middle of an ocean. Following the attack of a monster and the subsequent demise of the father, the house falls into the ocean. The story follows the mother and the son in the aftermath as they attempt to keep the house afloat and come to terms with these undesirable changes in their life. The film, without bias, talks about the transitions that define life. It focuses on the uncertainty that envelopes life and remarks on the resilience of the human spirit to accept the bad with the good and keep moving on. The film simultaneously addresses the issues of smoking and exaggeratedly depicts its factual link with cancer.
