Synopsis

A lone sailor is overcome by the vicious, stormy seas and becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island, with only the smallest creatures for company. The unnamed man forages for food and fresh water in order to survive, but his thoughts soon turn to escape. After building a raft from wood, the man attempts to return to the ocean but is halted by a destructive red turtle, who attacks the man’s raft with each new attempt to sail away. The man becomes disheartened, but is not to know that his adversary is set to change his life in incredible, unforeseeable ways. This is an entirely dialogue-free film, co-produced by animation giants Studio Ghibli, which gently reflects on the human life cycle.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
