Synopsis


A film without dialogue depicting the most important stages in life of a man who survives a shipwreck and finds himself on a deserted tropical island inhabited only by turtles, crabs and birds. The sailor tries to get off the island on a makeshift raft, but his attempt is thwarted by a turtle that destroys his vessel. Despite that, the sailor manages to find a new life on the deserted island thanks to a curious red turtle.
