… in 5 words:

A humorous response to homophobia.

 

… in 25 words:

The Island pokes fun at a homophobic letter by running with the idea of putting all gays onto an island; now wouldn’t that be fun!

 

… in 50 words:

An island full of gays… good or bad? Trevor Anderson sarcastically narrates/animates the notion of a gay island by taking on board images and stereotypes of homosexual men. He soon however warms to the idea but by the end, he makes a revelation; such a place would be extremely lonely.
