The Island provides a backdrop to the nuanced dialogues, its unforgettable characters and their journey along the winding and dusty roads which inevitably bring them home.Lead character Corrine MacGrady ventures away from her small and impoverished district of Longwood, to seek the promise in her studies to become a midwife. Through her empowering journey to foreign lands and back, we experience the cadence in the language of the island and the impassioned personalities of its people. This evocative story saturated with trials, pain and joy, demonstrates the destitution, fortitude and harmony that resonates within the lives and dreams of the people.
