Représentation fantasmagorique du clivage sociétal empreinte de mysticisme oriental. 
On an island caught between two worlds, a young refugee, heavily pregnant, lives on her own in a cave. Wandering the shores of Isola, the imaginary island where Italian naval ships dock each day filled with migrants, Dai naively scans the crowd in search of her husband, whose child she carries. Then one evening as the island rumbles, Dai’s wish appears to be granted… An allegory of the migrant crisis, where the unborn child symbolizes the promise of the new world and the cave, a refuge against violence, Isola is an otherworldly representation of social divide tinged with Eastern mysticism.
