Friday manages to escape and leaves Crusoe alone. Crusoe soon discovers he needs Friday's companionship and welcomes him back with open arms. When a slave ship comes to the island, Friday convinces Crusoe that it puts them both into peril. Ina violent battle, Crusoe and Friday defeat the slavers and kill the captain and his mate. Still, the both end up stranded; even a primitive hang glider fails to free them. After much difficulty, they finally build a seaworthy raft and sail to Friday's island. Crusoe seeks to join the black man's community, but they cannot accept him or his standards. Unable to adapt, he is destined to live out his life isolated and alone. Approx. Running Time: 112 Min.
