Stranded on a tropical island, with a few possessions salvaged from his lost ship, Robinson Crusoe encounters a tribe of cannibals. By the judicious use of his gun, he rescues a native from their clutches and wins his eternal devotion. But the savages return, and by an ingenious trick, succeed in capturing Crusoe, and taking his gun. It falls to Friday to use his native cunning to outwit them, and leave the island free for the two castaways to fashion a life for themselves, out of the crude materials at hand.
