Several mysterious happenings terrify an English family on the picturesque yet sinister Caribbean island of St. Barbe's. A huge four-legged creature stalks their little girl, Bobbie, in the grounds of the hotel which they operate. Next, Bobbie's older cousin, Jon, and his African-American girlfriend, Josie, discover a mutilated body in the island's reservoir, high in the rainforest.
