A closely knit island community begins to unravel when morning comes without the sun. Paranoia, panic, and religiosity grows. The new pastor tries to keep the community together but there is a demagogue among them.
While preparing their lines and inspecting the nets, a fisherman and his son see something through the mist.
He has just shot himself. Contemplating the spent casing, he feels something within, like a magnetic force, drawing him out.
The gloaming light sticks to everything like a stubborn fog. Fear grows by the hour. Communication with the mainland is impossible while prophecy on the island is palpable.
