A woman who lives in isolation believes she has a curse that will separate her from others for the rest of her life.

When she has a chance meeting with a solitary man, they spark a small hope for a less lonely future. But will it last?

Filmmaker’s statement

Though I’ve worked as a filmmaker for many years now, Islands was my first time directing a dramatic film. The experience was rewarding in ways I hadn’t experienced within documentary or experimental genres.

I tend towards working alone on many of my projects whereas, with Islands, the team-building and shared creative journey was deeply rewarding and certainly edifying.

Working with writer/star Jill Mary-Elizabeth McRae and producer Jason Arsenault was an experience I’d like to repeat.
