The Ornithologist

Fernando is out in nature camping on a riverbank birdwatching in Portugal. He gets into his yellow kayak watching all kinds of beautiful birds. He is so intent looking through his binoculars his kayak is swept into rapids and capsizes.

Two Chinese women Fei and Lin are hiking through the woods and they find Fernando's body. The one woman is afraid and the other sees a duty to try and help. They resuscitate Fernando. He speaks Portuguese and they Chinese but English lets them communicate. He explains that they are lost and far off their route. The women are afraid of the forest spirits and he appears to be a non-believer. The women tie the man up in ropes from a tree. They ignore his pleas and promises of help. During the night he frees himself and he climbs high up a cliff for safety. His phone will not work.
