Nim's Island

Synopsis: Nim Rusoe is a girl who joins her father, a scientist, when he does research on marine life on an island. It's just the two of them but she spends her time making friends with all the animals she encounters, chatting on the computer and reading the adventure books of Alex Rover. When her father goes to do some research but when a storm strikes the island he doesn't come back, she gets worried and frightened. She then e-mails Alex Rover hoping that he will come but what she doesn't know is that Alex Rover is a woman who is agoraphobic and germaphobic. But her creation comes to life and eggs her to go. Unfortunately she has never gone anywhere before and is denied her necessities like her sanitary gel by the customs officer at the airport. In the meantime, Nim tries to be strong while waiting for Alex to arrive.

Look at this-

Heirloom tomato seeds.

Do you remember those freckled

ones we were reading about?

Check it out!

The new Alex Rover!

My Arabian Adventure.

What do you think happens

in Arabia?

Wait until after dinner, Nim.

No, I'm just gonna start it.

"It's been my curse my entire life.

"I do not go looking for trouble,

but somehow it finds me.

The question wasn't, am I going to die?

The question was, how am I going to die?

Will it be by my captors' guns,

or will it be death by thirst?

Must be the hero

of my own life story.

Must be the hero

of my own life story.

Must be the hero

of my own life story.

Where are you taking me?

A special hole, just for you,

Alex Rover.

Ever heard of the Pit of Spiders?

"Pit of Spiders," huh?

Well, I guess that answers

the "how will I die" question.


No, no, no, no! Wait, wait, wait, stop!

Where're you going?

Oh, death by thirst makes a late comeback.

How did Alex Rover

get to be Alex Rover?

- Well, let's see.

- Was he born with all that courage?

"Was he born with all that courage?"


The thing about courage is...

it's somethin' that we have to learn

and relearn our whole lives.

You know, it's not just in you.

It's in every choice we make,

each and every day.

Where do you think Alex

Rover is at this very minute?

Oh, well, I don't know.

Maybe he's chained up in a sarcophagus

20,000 fathoms under the sea.

Or in some pit of spiders...

trapped without the antidote

for their poison.

Yeah, pit of spiders.

I like that.

Okay. Time to get some rest.

Sleep tight, now, okay?

And no dreaming about spiders.

Spider! Spider!

Get away from me.

All right.

These all go back here.

Straight. Right angles.

Is-Is this the, uh,

Telegraph Hill Pharmacy?

Yes, I need a delivery, please.

Uh, Purell.
