piece of debris from the plane and throws himself and Sam on the

down on the piece of debris as it floats away into the choppy
sea’s of the night.
The next Morning Martin and Sam’s Plane piece wash up onto the
beach of a small deserted Island with woods towards the end.
Sam...We made it! Were alive...I hope...
Nope... If we were dead I’d have a box of donuts right now.
Will ya shut up about the donuts, were stranded on this stupid
Island, millions of miles away from civilization,no shipping
lanes in sight, no food, no water, it would have been easier
just to have died in that stupid plane......... Oh my gosh.....
Phil..... the others...... for all we know they could be
Hits the ground and moans
I’ve got a family, I can’t die...
uhhhhhhhhhh......... I’ve got a .... cat, so I can’t die ei-
ther, yeah that’s my excuse
We’ve got to survive somehow...
We’ll in all the survival stories I’ve read.. people end up eat-
ing each other
We’ll if anyone is going to be eaten... it’s gonna be you
Sam that is ridiculous, anyway your the one whose pure fat, so
it would make more sense if you got eaten
Oh yeah well...... your probably right....... but wait we
can’t just eat each other
Your right sam, we need salt,pepper,ketchup, and a fire to
roast us on.....he he he............
That’s not what I meant... there must be some food, like coco-
nuts.. or oranges
Well the first thing we need is water.... so try the find some
kind of fruit that we can suck or something, i’ll keep watch for
Later that day
(Sam comes back with pond water in his shoe)
There’s a ...small pond back in the woods, I.. got ..some water.
Great.. now all we need is food, and some kind of shelter
Scene changes to dusk as the 2 are sitting under a
hut made of sticks as walls and palm tree leaves as a roof
Long pause as Sam and Martin stare at each other
Sam sighs and looks down
We have to be recused... I don’t want to live on this Island,
with our families...
Sam rolls his eyes
...and cat, thinking were dead.
They have to realize that were missing sooner or later
Sam looks down
Scene 7-Scene goes to A hotel on the Hawaiian beach front
and Mr. Adams is in his room talking on his phone.
So then were all accounted for...right
What do you mean not here yet... they were supposed to be here
last night...okay.....yes..... bye. (to himself) Well at least i
wont have to here them fight during the meeting..... but they
were my best workers, oh well I'm over it.
Scene shot goes back to martin and sam
How are we going to survive on this island.
Hello! My name is Joe Michael Connolly. I've been stranded
on this island for 25 years by my rocks. This island is forbid-
den for people other then the military, its been wiped off the
map as long as i have lived, i am the legal protecter of this
island, lucky for you i know your not an enemy soldier because i
saw your american plane crash.
(In a whisper) Should we trust this guy.
(In whisper) I don’t know, maybe we should just go with him. He
must have food and water... he’s been surviving here for 25
years by his rocks.
Ok.... Well go with you for now but i can assure you
that we are going to be rescued sooner or later.
You ain't gettin'''' of this island, its been wiped
of the radar for 25 years like i said.
Ummmmmmm...ok...uhh...hmm, well... where do you get your
food and water from.
There is a fresh water pond a few miles away and
there are some fish in the pond and there also is some wild ani-
mals scurrying around like rabbits and squirrels.
Ok...We'll good luck with that, me and Sam will be at
the beach looking for the rescue planes
Martin and Sam leave and Joe shakes his head
10 Days Later
Martin and Sam are still on the Beach
Were gonna have to live with “Grandpa Joe” over there
Shot goes to Joe’s smiling face
I guess your right, at least he knows how to survive, even if he
is an old bag.
Shot goes to Sam’s frowning Face.
Maybe we could still be rescued
Scene 9-Goes to Mr. Adams hotel room as he sits at a table
with his head down, and a tear rolling down his eye.
Shot closes in on a newspaper article that has a ti-
tle of “Search for Plane Crash survivors Called Off”, and then
it closes in on a part of the article that say’s “Martin Winters
and Samuel Green,were assumed dead at 10pm last night when the
search was called off.”
Camera all of a sudden zooms quickly out of the hotel
and above the ocean for 10 seconds and then ends on Sam and Mar-
tin with a worried look on their faces.
