Vancouver: When Amanda wakes up in the morning and looks out of the temporary cabin, there are many guests who appear in front of her. Bears, hyenas, wolves, and deer grazing in herds… and whales leaping out of the water as soon as the gaze reaches the sea. For two years on this island in British Columbia, Canada, Amanda’s life has been full of these sights. But beyond that look, there is no other human being. Because Amanda is the only person living on this island.

Amanda crossed the seas and reached this land with her job as the island’s lookout. Living in a cabin built about 25 years ago. A small kitchen, a dining area, two small bedrooms… Amanda says life here is beautiful even though there is no one to talk to.
