|Plot||This subject relates the thrilling experience of a sailor shipwrecked and afloat on a raft on the ocean. The first scene is that of a beach with a wide expanse of rolling ocean. Next we see an exterior view of the home of Harry Mainstay, and coming from it is Harry, clad in sailor's garb, his wife and daughter, who accompany him to the ship, and father and mother, who are following the party and waving adieus. Arriving at the gang plank Harry takes affectionate leave from his wife and daughter, and the boat is soon under way. Out on the ocean a heavy storm is raging, and the ship is wrecked on the shoals. A raft of planks is the only means of rescue. We now see the raft out on the ocean, tossed to and fro, flying on a pole a remnant of a flag as a signal of distress. There is a box in the center of the raft, but the provisions are exhausted, and the bottle of fresh water is about to be finished. It contains only a swallow; one of the number is in a faint on the raft and the other is crazed by the want of food and by fright. Harry is almost beside himself, but he wishes to help the one almost dead lying on the raft, and with this purpose in view he is emptying the bottle in a cup, when he is obliged to fight a battle with the crazed man. Finally it is necessary to strike the latter such a blow that he reels, and the next instant he is swallowed by the ocean. In the empty bottle Harry places a paper, on which he has written the names of the two lone survivors, and casts the bottle into the sea. The waves gradually wash it to shore, and one day, as his wife and daughter stroll the beach, anxiously peering out on the sea, the girl comes upon a bottle, which she brings to her mother, and therein they find the slip. Both believe the husband and father dead and mourn his loss, and we accompany them to the cemetery, where they are intently gazing upon the family plot, regretting that they have not even a mound to bedeck with floral offerings. Out on the sea we note the raft still intact and supporting the two famished men. A boat is sighted, and taking off his top shirt Harry makes frantic efforts to attract attention. He succeeds, for soon we see a row boat draw near and take up the poor unfortunates. When next we see our hero he is attired in a new sailor suit and is wending his way through the cemetery, where he anxiously seeks someone. As he comes upon the two figures we left at the family plot, all dressed in deepest mourning, he scarcely dares draw near for fear of the shock, but after much deliberation he manages to draw their attention his way, and upon recognition both step forward to his outstretched arms and joy reigns supreme in the hearts of the three.... search for A Message from the Sea on IMDb|
