Often listed as an horror flick, the picture, however, doesn't feature a single schock scene and is not your regular zombie movie. The tension is in the atmosphere and it's up to the viewer to decide whether he's watching a fantasy movie or a sad love story.
Canadian nurse Betsy Connell is sent by her employer in the Caribbean in order to take care of Jessica, Paul Holland's wife. This woman is in a catatonic condition after having suffered from a violent tropical fever. Betsy will learn that Holland's half-brother, Wesley, was about to leave the island with Jessica when the young woman became ill. Betsy, even if she's slowly falling in love with Holland, tries to cure Jessica. But she must first listen to the old beliefs of the island's natives who consider Jessica as zombie.
