Drama, Mystery) In 1985, at the Reef Net Inn on San Juan Island, Washington, a dysfunctional family gathers for a ‘video will’ following the death of the eldest daughter and amid strange events at the inn, are confronted with long-kept secrets and reconciling their beliefs regarding family relationships, love, marriage, aging and death.
It is 1985 and Laura Porento Bennett has left behind a husband and son, three younger sisters, her parents and a scatterbrained grandfather. Laura’s last wish was to have her Porento family all gather to watch a Last Will and Testament on a videotape machine. However, while at the Bennett’s Reef Net Inn on San Juan Island in Washington state, family members encounter a domino effect of terrifying mysteries, while their troubled inter-relationships are brought to a point of no return. Even the conditions surrounding Laura’s death become suspect. During this same weekend, Laura’s husband and son face off with their own set of demons, both above and below the unpredictable waters of Puget Sound. “Family is the glue that binds your book of life.” Laura’s father, Phil Porento, reminds everyone. But will all the members of the Porento and Bennett families survive the events that Laura has set in motion?
