Plot synopsis
Island is a kaleidoscopic account of everyday life in Armenia, in which ample attention is paid to both traditional and modern cultural expressions, including traditional songs. The film is also an indictment of the horrible social conditions in the country, and it criticizes the current situation in intimate, subjective scenes.
