The viewer is taken on one such journey, revealing the beauty and the striking strangeness of the island, showing the physical reality of Socotra and how it has shaped the islanders' lives over the centuries. The inhabitants have always lived virtually isolated from modern society, and have subsisted with very few resources, but they have great spiritual and cultural wealth.

it was good but..
10 August 2017 | by broojyemenSee all my reviews

I actually liked the documentary and I was surprised about what I saw and what I thought I knew about the island,I always thought that it's a dream island and never though of what might be the the every day struggle for the people who live there.However,I didn't see any good landscape shot when it is a very unique and beautiful island. and this what made think that he didn't tell the whole story.
