The show follows Mia who comes to the seemingly idyllic Peregrine Island along with other teenagers for a summer camp. Mia is popular with the others until she comes across Amber. Mia and Amber's fight for popularity is accompanied by strange events around the island. The trailer reveals that the teenagers are stranded as the ferry service to the island is stopped following the closure of the island the previous year after someone died. Mia begins to suspect that there is more to Amber and thinks she is dangerous when the "holiday of a lifetime" turns into a twisted nightmare.
