One day, Gale is exploring the landscape and hunting crocodiles when he becomes delirious and disoriented. A veteran hunter living with the native people, Sleigh (John Huston), rescues the dying Gale and takes him back to the village. When Gale begins feeling better, Sleigh denounces the modern-day society that Gale is used to, like people's greed for money and materials. He even shows Gale firsthand a tragic example of what modern-day society inflicted on his land.
