“ISLANDBORN is about a little girl named Lola who is an immigrant, but she left the island when she was very, very little so she didn’t grow up with any memories of the island. And what happens is she’s one of those girls who’s surrounded by her immigrant community and everybody talks about the island, and everybody reminisces about this place that they left, and she has no memories of it. And she really wants some sort of connection, she wants to remember.”
