THE ISLAND

THE ISLAND
The Island, based on Victoria's Hislop bestseller,  is an ode to the strength of the human will. A story that takes us on a journey to the beautiful landscapes of Crete and the fascinating lives of its people, from 1939 to present; a tale about the glory of everyday men and women who manage to rise above destiny’s cruelest blows and find the power to love, to dream, to survive... Across Plaka, a beautiful village in Eastern Crete, lies Spinalonga; the Island. The old Venetian fortress towers over the small piece of land that served for decades as a place of compulsory exile for lepers. Alexis, a college student from London trying to unlock her past, travels to Crete and plunges into the gripping history of three generations of great women - all of them haunted by Spinalonga.
