In Beacon, Emily (Telles) finds herself shipwrecked and badly injured on a remote island. Emily is rescued by Ismael (Bichir), the island’s isolated lighthouse operator. As she slowly heals, Ismael begins to act increasingly erratic, and Emily begins to suspect he may have intentionally entrapped her. But Ismael has his suspicions about his guest and what brought her there.

Beacon was written by Julio Rojas and was produced by Neil Elman, Taralee Gerhard, and Andrew C. Erin. Executive producers include Fernando Szew, Tony Vassiliadis, Alex Zito, and Demián Bichir.
