With summer in full swing, a trip to the beach may seem a perfect escape. Golden sand underfoot, a quick paddle in crystal clear water, and bountiful ice cream vans loaded with treats to satisfy every sweet tooth…what better way to spend an afternoon?

Unfortunately for one family, a dream day out becomes a nightmare as their idyllic getaway suddenly shifts into a lifetime of startling transformations as they discover that the beach upon which they lay is inexplicably causing them to age rapidly. Minutes become years and hours become decades as time quite literally flashes before their eyes.
