  • Short Summary

    Turtles crawl across a beach, a woman turns a turtle over and boys are cruel to turtles.

  • Description

    Shot in Florida, United States of America.

    C/U of a turtle making its way across a sandy beach. C/U of the turtle as it moves towards the camera. The turtle reaches the sea and has a little swim in the shallow water. Intertitle reads: "Very undignified for a turtle of the best family" - shot of a turtle on its back waving its legs in the air.

    Woman approaches the turtle and goes up close to it (it is a pretty big turtle - about 4 foot long I'd say.) The woman kneels down beside it then struggles to turn it over. "A modern version of a very old fable."

    Two young boys sit in go-carts / go-karts which they have attached to two turtles. They whip the turtles to make them move along the sand - horrible boys! Animal cruelty.
