In this episode of the supernatural anthology series, Mataku co-creator Carey Carter unravels the tale of five childhood friends who reunite years later, for a fishing trip. Luke (Hemi Rudolph) takes his mates to a fishing spot that's "out of this world" — it's also worryingly close to a sacred island. The abrasive Ron (Geoffrey Dolan from Kai Kōrero) refuses to believe that a breach of tapu could be behind a strange run of events which sees their boat losing power, after a mysterious encounter at sea. But much worse awaits when the group are forced to spend the night on the island.
