      THE ISLAND OF SEA WOMEN offers up an evocative tale of two best friends whose bonds are both strengthened and tested over decades by forces beyond their largely on the remote Korean island of Jeju, THE ISLAND OF SEA WOMEN follows Young-sook and Mi-ja, girls from strikingly different backgrounds who bond over their shared love of the sea. The Venetian Islands project in Biscayne Bay are a chain of man-made islands, connected by bridges from the Miami mainland to the Miami Beach in Florida. One of the most prominent sets of islands, among the many artificial islands in Miami, the islands include Belle Isle, Rivo Alto, Di Lido, San Marino, San Marco and Biscayne.

    Somewhere some nameless bureaucrat decided that the citizens of a Korean island, Jeju, needed copies of the book, Heidi, set in the Swiss Alps. Copies were distributed and for some reason the citizens fell in love with it. They sat around and read it as families and discussed it . Island of Men is a community organisation that facilitates events dedicated to helping men find a deeper connection with self, community and nature. IOM is all about mens health and wellbeing and we love any opportunity to guide a man back into his truth.

    People speak of leaving the island for a new one nearby (called Santa Catalina), but the tribal council decided that they should stay. The council chooses a new chief, Kimki, to take Chowig's place. Kimki decrees that, since so many of the village's men have been killed, women must do the jobs that were once left only to men.   While Sex Island’s private events are targeted to the rich and famous, the five mysterious founders believe the $6,per-person public event for the average Joe is a small price to pay for.
