Winter 2003. Nearly a year since the Cessna plane 173-DAC disappeared somewhere over Cutter’s Cove, remote SW Fiordland.

Cutter’s cove is an area plagued by stories of strange and unexplained phenomenon. Also known as Devil's Cove, this region is steeped in disturbing tales of missing persons, aircraft disappearances and unsettling Maori myths. Evil lurks here, and those who bear witness to this evil will eventually become the missing...

Despite numerous search and rescue attempts, the plane, its pilot and solo passenger wealthy French-Kiwi businessman Claude le Brun have never been found.

With new information and backing from Claude’s only son and heir to the family fortune Andre, a three-man TV documentary team head into this uncharted and unforgiving terrain in an attempt to solve the mystery.
