The majority of the cultures and mythologies refer to heaven or idyllic world where all human suffering is eradicated (heaven) but also contradict a scenario where “deviants” are subjected to the cruelest torture and sorrow (hell). The problem of losing the right to enjoy the paradise of their own decisions puts men in a race against themselves to get it back. Life is today presented as hard, unfair and chaotic, yet not always been so. The link between work and leisure time is based on the teachings of the gods. The junket is constituted as such an attempt, human and imperfect, to recover the lost paradise. Within this context, the following discourse examines the fundamental elements of the tourist trip in The Island, film directed by M. Bay starring by E. MacGregor and S. Johansson. Work goals are associated with interpreting the speech of that film and his subsequent relationship with obvious issues like cloning debate, the anthropological process of territorial and identity, economic utilitarianism and the journey as a producer of otherness and setting standards (coercion).
