A man is kidnapped and brought to an island that is impossible to leave for those who are born there. Emerson, the young kidnapper, is one of those island people, and he has a passionate wish: to make a film about his own life. His radical solution to help achieve this leads to a film about both himself and his hostage, who reenact their lives. When real life beyond the camera increasingly shapes the narrative of the film, things start to get out of hand. The multilayered Island evolves from a playful game of metacinema to an allegorical tale of Brazil’s untold stories.
