Two US Marshals are sent to Shutter Island in Boston Harbor, hospital for the criminally insane. One of their patients, a murderess called Rachel Solando, has disappeared and is believed to hide somewhere on the island. The hospital staff is unable to locate her and thus had to call for the marshalls. The storm comes across the island, which makes their job even harder. But since coming to Shutter Island one of the marshals, Teddy Daniels, is haunted by the flashbacks from his past - during his service in World War 2 and scenes from his realtionship. The flashbacks starts to interfere with his assignment.

Dark atmosphere of the island and heavy storm create very tensed picture of the film. The plot and the setting plus great cast makes this film a really memorable experience.
