Corn Island (Georgian: ?, romanized: simindis k'undzuli) is a 2014 Georgian drama film directed by Giorgi Ovashvili.


Spring flooding forms a small island with rich soil in the middle of the Enguri River, new land without an owner. An old man, assisted by his orphaned teenage granddaughter, takes possession of the island, builds a simple hut, and plants corn. They are ethnic Abkhaz and exchange nods with passing Georgian soldiers. The old man shelters a wounded soldier who takes refuge on the island and protects him from his pursuers for a time. At the end of the summer, flooding destroys the island.
