Before Long Beach Island was known as a summer resort there was Tucker's Island. This true, Atlantis-like tale begins with the tragic experiences of the first known settlers to the lost island south of present-day Beach Haven. Through this film we learn how New Jersey's first Seashore resort came to be abandoned, reclaimed by stroms, tides and shifting sand, and nearly forgotten. Featuring local historian John Bailey Lloyd, and the last living residents' memories of the final years of Tucker's Island.
