Five women are living on an abandoned island, all
the men have left and they are contemplating whether to leave or to stay. As a
strange ship appears on the horizon their peace is shattered.
The crescent moon is a common symbol in the Muslim world and when the crescent appears at the bottom of the moon it creates a shape reminiscent of a boat. This is the Devil's Ship.
