Out on a dead calm ocean, in a thick fog, a group of tourists on a pleasure craft are about to cross paths with an ancient and terrible evil. Nearby, a dying man (John Rhys-Davies) drifts alone on a stricken yacht. He has been cheating death for countless years, trading broken bodies for new ones using a secret, deadly weapon. But now is the time of reckoning. The Ferryman, the ancient conveyor of death is close and he wants payment to be made.
