Synopsis

Written and recorded in less than a day, Isabelle became Greg Johnson's biggest single to date, despite the fears of guitarist and label boss Trevor Reekie that a lack of drums limited its radio chances. The enigmatic lyrics — memory, cities under siege, a woman from Zagreb — are complimented by moody images of future Shortland Street actor Josephine Davison, and the band in obligatory sunglasses. Director James Holt now directs commercials around the globe.

Just because it says she comes from Zagreb, doesn't mean she's currently living there does it? Perhaps she moved to an old shack in a rustic rural area. Lol

The biggest unanswered question, if Isabelle comes from the city of Zagreb, why does she appear to live in an old shack in a rustic rural area?
