Plot Summary
In the 1800s, a Virginia slave trader, Crusoe (Aidan Quinn), is shipwrecked on an unknown island on his way to South Africa to pick up more slaves, along with the only other survivor, a dog. Crusoe builds himself a camp from the ship's remains, and later discovers "savages" on the other side of the island.
