THE EXIT CLAUSE Poster View larger



The sudden drug related death of Kiwi Hollywood movie star Daniel Thorne sends shock-waves across a waking world but in this reality it pays to keep your options open.

Spiraling out of control Daniel's self-destructive behavior introduces him to a mysterious Entertainment Agent that offers Daniel an eleventh hour deal known as The Exit Clause.

The Exit Clause is a program designed for the extremely rich and famous wanting to get out of the limelight to lead a simple anonymous life at Sanctuary Bay a secret island paradise set in the Bay of Islands New Zealand.

Home to some extraordinary residents here you'll find Jimmy Hendrix tending his cottage garden, Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain discussing world issues over a glass of wine, Heath Ledger jaming guitar with River Phoenix and more stars than a star wars galaxy.

Daniel Thorne is now a resident of Sanctuary Bay and is met by Annie the lovely guide who must help him adjust to this new life.

Sanctuary Bay is a magical place that asks the question 'Did they really die?' or are they happy somewhere in the world just being themselves happy and free to do as they wish - oh yeah and I also heard Elvis is flipping burgers somewhere in Nevada.
