In 1913 Dr. Louis Thomas and his family settle on the French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon. Enchanted by how this French land navigates the harsh climate of the Atlantic Ocean, he immerses himself in his passion for photography and captures the soul of the place. Yet despite his love for St. Pierre and its people, he leaves one day, abandoning his photographs. Fifty years later, Francois, a native of St. Pierre now working in Paris, and a young aspiring writer Emily, discover the impressive collection of photographs left behind. The two endeavour to exhibit the collection, and above all, to discover what haunted the mysterious Dr. Thomas. The Islands of Dr. Thomas explores how art preserves culture and identity, connecting generations.
