the island Movie has been described as a pastiche of “escape-from-dystopia” science fiction films of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Fahrenheit 451, THX 1138, Parts: The Clonus Horror, and Logan’s Run.

In 2019, Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta live with others in an isolated compound. This dystopian community is governed by a strict set of rules. The residents are told that the outside world has become too contaminated to support life with the exception of a pathogen-the island Movie. Each week, one resident gets to leave the compound and live on the island by way of a lottery.
Lincoln begins having dreams that what he knows are not from his own experiences. Dr. Merrick, a scientist who runs the compound, is concerned and places probes in Lincoln’s body to monitor his cerebral activity. While secretly visiting an off-limits power facility in the basement where technician James McCord works, Lincoln discovers a live moth in a ventilation shaft, leading him to deduce the outside world is not really contaminated. Lincoln follows the moth to another section, where he discovers the “lottery” is actually a system to selectively remove inhabitants from the compound, where the “winner” is then used for organ harvesting, surrogate motherhood, and other important purposes for each one’s wealthy sponsor, of whom they are clones.
Merrick learns Lincoln has discovered the truth, which forces Lincoln to escape. Meanwhile, Jordan has been selected for the island. Lincoln and Jordan escape the facility and emerge in the desert. Lincoln explains the truth to her, and they set out to discover the real world. Merrick hires Burkinabé mercenary and former GIGN operative Albert Laurent to find and return them to the compound.
Lincoln and Jordan find McCord, who explains that all the facility residents are clones of wealthy sponsors, and are kept ignorant about the real world and conditioned to never question their environment or history. McCord provides the name of Lincoln’s sponsor in Los Angeles and helps them to the Yucca maglev station, where they board an Amtrak train to LA before mercenaries kill him. In New York City, Jordan’s sponsor, model Sarah Jordan, is comatose following a car crash and requires transplants from Jordan to survive. Lincoln’s sponsor, Tom Lincoln, gives Lincoln some explanation about the cloning institute, causing Lincoln to realize that he has gained Tom’s memories.
Tom agrees to help Lincoln and Jordan but, desperately in need of Lincoln’s liver to survive due to his cirrhosis, secretly contacts Merrick, who sends Laurent and the mercenaries to their location. After a car chase through suburban LA, Lincoln tricks Laurent into shooting Tom, allowing him to assume Tom’s identity.
Merrick surmises that a cloning defect was responsible for Lincoln’s memories and behavior, resulting in him and every future clone generation to question their environment and even tap into their sponsor’s memories. To prevent this, he decides to eliminate the four newest generations of clones. Lincoln and Jordan, however, plan to liberate the other clones. Posing as Tom, Lincoln returns to the compound to destroy the holographic projectors that conceal the outside world.
Jordan allows herself to be caught to assist Lincoln’s plan. Laurent, who has moral qualms about the clones’ treatment after witnessing their fight for survival and learning that Sarah Jordan may not survive even with the organ transplants, helps Jordan. Lincoln kills Merrick, and the clones are freed, seeing the outside world for the first time. Lincoln and Jordan sail away in a boat together toward the island, where all the clones were promised they would go.

The computer in Merrick’s office at the Institute, which features a large, tabletop touchscreen display capable of detecting several forms of input, was rumored to be a large version of Microsoft PixelSense. The design was actually proposed by a technology adviser at MIT, who aimed for the production of a believable vision of futuristic technology.
