Synopsis: Cast Away is a 2000 American epic survival drama film directed and produced by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks, Helen Hunt, and Nick Searcy.

The film was a critical and commercial success, and Hanks was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the 73rd Academy Awards for his performance.

CHUCK:

My guess is we're talking fuel filters

here, Fernando. The gas is dirty, these

jitneys get in the mountains, their

engines cut out.

FERNANDO:

That could lose us half an hour.

CHUCK:

Easy. Each way.

His beeper goes off.

INT. FEDEX OFFICES - MANILA - DAY - MOMENTS LATER

Chuck is on the phone.

CHUCK:

So it finally turned up...

Chuck hesitates for a moment, then looks at his watch.

CHUCK:

I'll catch the sweep tonight.

INT. FEDEX PLANE - NIGHT

Strapped into the jump seat behind the pilots, Chuck sleeps

with a mask over his eyes. On his lap are some travel

brochures. We see sailboats, we see the Florida keys.

EXT. ST. PETERSBURG FEDEX OFFICES - DAY

Christmas in Russia. Snow everywhere. Brightly colored

lights. Chucks gets out of a Volga with Aleksei. He has a

bag over his shoulder, the dented package under one arm.

INT. FEDEX OFFICES - DAY

The staff has assembled near the loading dock. Yuri the

station manager stands in front, occasionally catching the

eye of the attractive woman. Chuck displays the FedEx box.

CHUCK:

It took this test package thirty-two

hours to get from Seattle to St.

Petersburg, a distance of nine thousand

miles. And then it took forty-one hours

to get from our warehouse in St.

Petersburg to here, a distance of,

what --

ALEKSEI:

Six kilometers. Four miles.

CHUCK:

So how are we going to get this place

shaped up?

There's a muttered chorus of answers.
