A film crew journeys around Roanoke Island looking for traces of the famed Lost Colony. The idyllic journey begins on the beach where the colonists first landed in the 1500s. Travis and the team relax and have a bit of fun, but the fun ends when mysterious forces lead the them deep into the woods and then prevent them from escaping! Just when the four adventurers are about to come apart, they make a dramatic find in the shocking conclusion.
The Roanoke Colony on Roanoke Island in Dare County, present-day North Carolina, United States was a late 16th-century attempt to establish a permanent English settlement in what later became the Virginia Colony. The enterprise was financed and organized by Sir Walter Raleigh and carried out by Ralph Lane and Richard Grenville, Raleigh's distant cousin. The final group of colonists disappeared during the Anglo-Spanish War, three years after the last shipment of supplies from England. The settlement is known as "The Lost Colony," and the fate of the colonists is still unknown.
