Islands is a dialogue-free fable that tells the story of Vaine - a beautiful young woman trapped on an island with Putu, her brutish 'protector'. Each day, she briefly escapes his attentions and goes to the strait that separates their island from Tamatoa’s island; Tamatoa stands on the opposite shore and they share a gentle, word-less love play until Putu finds out.
