The Castaway

The Castaway

Duration 23m

Franz relates to the rest of the family how he managed to survive the first few days on the island when he thought he had been the only one who managed to reach shore. He tells of how he landed, very weak and battered, but even in this stage of shock used his common sense and initiative to cover himself, find food and when he saw the others conducting his funeral, tried to attract their attention. Father realizes how they have all come a long way in adapting to their environment and all of them, even down to little Marie, have developed an awareness of what must be done to survive.
