Extract from the script:

Ext. The sea. Day

Sun. Sea.

They drift in their rubber boat, lost in the endless expanse. Both bodies rest limply at the edge of the boat.


Two men on a rubber boat, lost in the waste, endless sea. No water, no food and no glimpse of hope. Inevitably the boat sinks. Two men and only one lifejacket.
