Synopsis: It’s 1954, and up-and-coming US marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He’s been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn’t been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy’s investigation soon provides a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals ‘escape’, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything — even his own sanity.
