The storyline is set in Crockett Island, a small and segregated island community. It is full of feuds and differences, amongst its people. The situation becomes worse with the return of an infamous young man (Zach Gilford), who does not hold a good reputation amongst the islanders. Upon his return, mysterious and unexplainable, spooky, and supernatural events hit the city to horror. However, a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater), who happens to have the same arrival time on the island as Zach Gilford, gives a sense of pacification to the islanders. Moreover, the miraculous events that follow post the arrival of the priest make the islanders cling to religion more than ever.
The islanders soon realize that all good things come with a price, and miracles are no different. What price will the islanders pay to have to pay for the miracles happening around them? Well, we will find that out on September 24, 2021, on Netflix.
