The members of a commune, dressed in white and holding torches, throw themselves into the sea from a cliff in the Canary Islands. The police suspect that one of them could have been Gabriel’s sister Cordelia, whom he hasn’t seen in several years. Gabriel arrives to help with the police investigation. But as he and Helena, Cordelia’s best friend, begin to unearth the motives that led the commune to commit mass suicide, Gabriel begins to question his own relationship to his sister, wondering whether he pushed her away from him and into the arms of a cult.
