• “Stand-out performances and an intricate, well thought through script... undoubtedly a second viewing is a must to fully traverse the frantic speed at which Watson’s heady vision commences thematically. It is surprising and thoughtful, and an absorbing example of the best that British genre cinema has to offer.” – Leeds International Film Festival • “It takes some nerve to blend a supernatural techno-thriller with faith’s mysteries… Yet, Brad Watson slaloms with ease between the potential snags, plays the claustrophobic card – an obvious contrast with the metaphysical concepts he tackles - and (as a former editor), knows how to impose a breathtaking rhythm to the film.” - Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival

He's part of a trio of computer hackers about to embark on the ultimate job on the world's most mysterious mainframe. Whilst doing so, they unlock more than they bargain for with supernatural and ultimately fatal results. Can this seemingly insignificant chain of events, which have thrown this group together, be construed as fate? Can the beacon provide a signal of hope or is it a web of manipulation, paranoia and ultimately... murder?
