Greek Irene Papas, Australian Eva Sitta and Sri Lankan Anoja Weerasinghe all meet while vacationing on a tiny Greek island. The threesome discovers that each is a fugitive from an oppressive, unhappy private life. The protective nature of the Island is personified by deafmute native Chris Haywood, who accidentally kills a man who has been annoying Sitta. Having been sheltered from their pasts by the Island, the three ladies conspire to return the favor by hiding Haywood from prosecution. Produced by an Australian firm, The Island was lensed on location on the Aegean isle of Astypalea.
