The Calloway Festival

New Years Eve at Calloway Festival is absolute paradise. Set in the secluded Bay of Islands, Calloway Fest is three days of beaches, live music, and manic crowds. For James and his friends the perfect adventure becomes their worst nightmare as regrets isolate the group and their tormentor will make sure they don’t survive the countdown.

The Calloway Festival is the perfect way to bring in the New Year. For James and his friends, it’s the night to end all nights.
As the group heads up north to an exclusive location tucked away in the Bay of Islands, their expectations are blown away. They stumble upon a beachfront paradise and begin a three-day adventure of camping, drinking and completely losing their minds.

James the young lawyer and Lucas the apprentice builder are friends from college and have both been fighting for Michelle ever since. Sarah has always been the quiet one of the group and has never fully opened up about her past.
Sammy, the tom-girl of the gang enjoys the freedom of having both Sarah and Michelle vying for her affection.
Michelle the beauty technician never says no to a big night. She should probably tell Lucas that she slept with James three weeks ago so he can move on.
Dan is the glue of the boys. He’s always up for a challenge, camouflaging his true feelings behind a quick wit.

During the festival, a mass killing rocks the party. The friends are now scattered and alone amongst a crowd of 25,000. In the mayhem of flashing lights, gunfire, rain, mud and music, each of the gang’s past unlocks clues that will either help bring them together or tear them violently apart.
