Starring Joanna Cassidy, the film, drawn from an original script, revolves around Angela, a 17-year-old who’s having a recurring nightmare about a 16th-century witch burned to death on a dark and mysterious beach. To explain this nightmare and reclaim her life, she signs up for a two-week retreat for troubled teens on the Caribbean island of Matau, run by noted child psychologist Professor Avebury (Cassidy). Little does Angela realize that Matau hides a horrific secret history, nor does she know that her nightmares stem from this very spot.
Upon her arrival, Angela meets the other troubled teenagers, all of whom play a role in the mystery of her dream — in particular, the enigmatic Bethany, who claims to be a witch and seduces the others into joining her coven. Gradually, Angela realizes her nightmares aren't dreams at all, but memories of her past life. As the true nature of the frightening nightmare unfolds, Bethany seems determined to either seduce or destroy Angela. With the witching hour ticking closer, Angela races to solve the mystery of the Caribbean island and its legendary witch coven.
