Through the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds, The Red Turtle recounts the milestones in the life of a human being.

"The Red Turtle is a profoundly simple meditation on the many ways we've become alienated from nature and from the Earth." - Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer

"A fable, beautifully drawn in calm, soothing colors, it doesn't even have dialogue, let alone a throbbing soundtrack. Those sounds you hear are the sounds of silence, and eventually they become hypnotic." - Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press
