Magnus and his crew aboard the Kinloch Bravo oil rig are stationed off the Scottish coast in the dangerous waters of the North Sea. When they must be collected and returned to the mainland, a mysterious and enveloping mist spreads through them. The platform is hit by massive tremors and they are cut off from all communication with the coast and the outside world. As the crew struggle to figure out what drives this unknown force, a major accident forces them to ask questions about who they can really trust. Ties are broken, alliances are formed, and generational failures are exposed. The Bravo platform crew will be pushed to the limit of both loyalty and endurance, in a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination.
