Written and directed by Paul Almont, Isabel takes place in a Canadian coastal village. Genevieve Bujold, who must hold the patent for Enigmatic Young Women, plays a girl whose flawlessly beautiful face masks the maelstrom swirling in her mind. Isabel is haunted by the images of her family members, each of whom suffered a violent death. Believing herself the product of an incestuous relationship, Isabel enters into an affair with a young man who resembles her own brother. Marc Strange, who plays Bujold's paramour, also wrote the songs heard on the soundtrack of Isabel.
