In this Agatha Christie classic, ten strangers invited to an exclusive resort on a remote island arrive expecting to be pampered in the lap of luxury. They soon discover their unknown host seeks revenge for their alleged past crimes. Trapped with no way off the island, the visitors begin to mysteriously die, one by one. The terrorized survivors struggle to understand and uncover which of them is the killer before none of them are left.
