„Corn Island" is a psychological drama. The action in the film takes place at the natural border of the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict – the Enguri River. The spring floods create a small island in the middle of the river, where an old peasant grows corn. Later a Georgian border policeman comes to the island and changes the seemingly ideal life of the old peasant and his 16-year old granddaughter.
