Robinson Crusoe is a small island hundreds of kilometres away from the Chilean coast where in 1704 the Scottish sailor Alexandre Selkirk lived the incredible experience that inspired Daniel Defoe's novel of the same name. In 1877 the island becomes the property of a young Swiss aristocrat, Alfred von Rodt. Film reveals a utopia that relies on the "purity" of its inhabitants and environment, and offer a potent metaphor for contemporary nationalism and politics of fear.
