On a deserted island in the Pacific, surrounded by the enemy, two very different men learn to rely on each other for survival. Mike is an uneducated rascal, one step ahead of prison and a court-martial. He's given one chance to redeem himself: if he wants to stay out of jail, he has to keep Professor James Hardmore alive. No matter what.

James is everything Mike isn't--suav

The starting point of this novella reminded me an old Italian movie "Swept Away... by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August" which was remade by Madonna in recent times, but I had in mind the old version.
