Un naufragé se trouve dans l'eau, seul, au milieu de l'océan démonté. Il s'échoue sur une plage à proximité d'une forêt de bambous. L'homme se nourrit et explore la région : il monte au sommet d'une éminence rocheuse et s'aperçoit qu'il se trouve sur une île déserte peuplée d'une faune et d'une flore foisonnantes. Il est très vite remarqué par de petits crabes blancs qui le suivent et l'observent chaque fois qu'il vient sur la plage. À un moment donné, alors qu'il explore la partie rocheuse de la côte, il tombe dans un trou entouré de hauts rochers infranchissables. Il parvient finalement à s'en échapper en passant par un siphon sous-marin qu'il franchit en apnée à grand-peine. L'homme rassemble quelques troncs de bambous tombés sur le sol de la forêt. La nuit venue, il dort sur la plage et rêve qu'il avance en planant sur un gigantesque pont de bambous qui s'étire sans fin par-dessus la mer et lui permet de quitter l'île.
