The year is 1954 and the government keeps its most dangerous and disturbed criminals locked away in a hospital-prison on the remote Shutter Island. When one detainee escapes from Ashecliffe Hospital, Federal Marshals Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule receive the assignment to go and track down the maniac. But when a horrible storm hits the island, everything becomes much more complicated, much more frightening, and much more dangerous. Daniels has enough skeletons in his closet that soon he is questioning his own sanity, and SHUTTER ISLAND throbs with the paranoia of tenuous sanity.
