When Martin Popplewell was 15 years old he watched the film 'The Blue Lagoon' starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. From then on he was determined to live as a castaway on an uninhabited Pacific Island with a girl Friday. When he realised his dream in 1989 he was just 18 years old. The adventure became a media sensation with journalists flying halfway round the world to cover the story. Martin kept a video diary of his experience. In 2001 he returned to the Pacific to make a critically acclaimed documentary. The Real Castaway reunites the two castaways on their desert island 12 years after their experience. It’s a story about adventure, growing up and the pursuit of an impossible dream.
