Meredith (Miranda Otto) and her officious, proper and demanding uncle (Barry Otto) are sent to the isolated lighthouse on remote and rugged South Solitary island shortly after World War I, to take over after the death of the head light keeper. The small supporting family living there, Harry (Rohan Nichol) and his steely wife (Essie Davis) with their three young children, provide little comfort, and the sullen, introverted assistant keeper, Fleet (Marton Csokas), is the only other inhabitant. After a series of mishaps, Meredith is left alone with Fleet, a horse and Lucille the lamb … and her demons. These two damaged people have to make an accommodation with the wild weather and themselves to try and survive.
