“Magnus and his crew are stationed in dangerous waters on the North Sea off the coast of Scotland on the Kinloch bravo oil plant,” the intriguing synopsis notes. A mysterious and enveloping fog is revealed when they are gathered and return to the continent.

“Massive tremors hit the Rig, and they find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world. As the crew endeavour to discover what’s driving this unknown force, a major accident forces them to ask questions about who they can really trust. Bonds are broken, allegiances formed, and generational fault lines exposed. The crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of both their loyalties and their endurance, into a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination.”

The Rig that is made and built by David Macpherson from Wild Mercury Productions is due to begin filming on a real petroleum platform in Scotland later this month.
