A life vest won’t save your soul.
No one rides for free.
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. Sharing the same ocean, a sick, dying old Greek man drifts alone on a stricken yacht. The Greek 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 the Greek. There is a payment to be made.
