What happens when your best friend gets what you've always wanted?

Krissie and Sarah - best friends for years - have always wanted different things from life.

So when Krissie becomes pregnant after a fling and Sarah can't seem to conceive, things get a little tense.

Krissie and Sarah decide to go on holiday along with Sarah's husband in the hope of getting their friendship back on track. But what starts as a much-needed break soon becomes a nightmare of sexual tension, murder and mayhem...
