Kuto was born on Christmas Island, and his life has been filled with grief ever since. His parents were killed when he was just a child, and he was raised by his grandparents. They were kind to him, but they could never fill the void left by his parents’ death.
As he grew older, Kuto became increasingly withdrawn and angry. He got into fights at school and ended up getting expelled. He drifted from job to job, never staying in one place for long. His only constants in life were his grandfather’s fishing boat and the crew of misfits who sailed with him.
One day, while out sailing, they came across an abandoned yacht adrift in the ocean. There was no sign of any passengers or crew onboard. They towed it back to port and sold it for scrap metal.
A few weeks later, strange things started happening aboard their own ship. The radio would crackle with static whenever they tried to use it; the compass would spin wildly; lights would flicker on and off; objects would disappear and reappear in different places… It was as if the yacht’s curse had followed them home . . .
