The Wolf Isle Fellows, an elite group of scholars and thinkers, are delivered to a deserted island and taxed by their host – one of the world’s richest men – with finding solutions to mankind’s most intractable problems. Their initial enthusiasm soon evaporates – the island is completely cut off from the outside world and the Fellows, deprived of their usual sources of inspiration, quickly descend into chaos. At the same time, mysterious circumstances combine to prevent them from leaving the island and, when nature intervenes, the situation turns deadly. Pitted against brutal men and a menacing locale, the Fellows are forced into a harrowing journey to save themselves.
