Storyline

Madison is a rebellious teenager who's spent most of her life moving around from boarding school to boarding school. Her personal relationships are limited and the only family she has left is her estranged stepmother, Patricia. So when Patricia suddenly shows up an invites her on a trip to St. Isabel (an island Madison used to visit with her Father) it comes as a complete surprise. Once on the island Madison meets Blake, a local guide. Blake plans a paddle board excursion and takes Madison to a remote part of the island. Once out in the ocean, Madison has a panic attack (or so it seems) and falls off her board and reportedly drowns. Miraculously, Madison survives the ordeal and somehow makes her way out of the remote jungle and back to the resort. Once she arrives, she's stunned to see Blake and Patricia together!

Almost Dead on Arrival
12 May 2015 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Beautiful dark-haired Malese Jow (as Madison "Maddie" Ashland) is expecting to go to India on break from boarding school, as usual. The underage and mysteriously medicated Ms. Jow is surprised when her tightened-up blonde stepmother Olivia d'Abo (as Patricia) offers a change in plans. The previously combative Ms. d'Abo has decided she wants to get chummy with Jow. They fly to an isolated paradisiacal island. Romance and danger quickly find Jow when tourist guide Gavin Houston (as Blake) saves her from a seemingly random attack. Later, well-built childhood friend Luis Omar O'Farrill (as Andres) lends some muscle. His presence is needed, as danger mounts. The lush location photography by Andrew Strahorn and diverse cast are notable, but this TV movie is mostly predictable and occasionally sleepy.

**** Presumed Dead in Paradise (7/12/14) Mary Lambert ~ Malese Jow, Olivia d'Abo, Gavin Houston, Luis Omar O'Farrill
