Chuck is a hard-working FedEx manager. The Moscow depot of FedEx is having problems. The cold, and general staff apathy is leading to delays. Chuck's enthusiasm rubs off on the other employees, and the depot starts to work more effectively. Every few minutes Chuck checks the clock - will the delivery meet time targets?

He returns home to the US, and spends a precious few days with his girlfriend Kelly. Though their Christmas together suddenly comes to an end when Chuck is called away on business.

Chuck's plane is over the mid-Pacific, when a ferocious storm causes it to crash. Chuck is the only survivor. He's washed ashore onto an uninhabited tropical island. Chuck now measures time in days, not seconds.
