Bryce, then twenty-three, had gone surfing alone off Westport Beach, in Kintyre, the morning of April 30th; he was rescued the night of May 1st.
Lowe sent him a message on what appeared to be a dormant Facebook account; to her surprise, she heard from him the next day, while at a Glasgow museum with her family. He was going to be in Glasgow that night, with a couple of hours to spare. He remembers facts and thoughts exactingly. He describes the conditions, the currents, the wind, his logic, his succession of plans as he was blown out to sea.

He recounts how, after he tried paddling inland for five hours, on and off, to little avail, he panicked, then made another plan. Lowe augments his story with ocean sounds and brief narration but keeps the focus on him. We hear soft ocean noises. It was kind of golden.

We get a sense of what happens to the mind and the spirit when trying to survive: at one point, Bryce confuses a seagull for a helicopter, starts to question his perceptions, and begins to despair. Lowe edits with subtle, minimal, atmospheric sounds. When I heard the soft chop of helicopter blades—a real helicopter came to rescue him—I found myself sobbing with relief in my kitchen, even though, of course, I already knew that he had survived. He does, simply and humbly.
Now, three years later, her enthusiasm has only deepened. Subtle narrative bursting with menace. Subtle storytelling with an ever-present sense of threat about the moral collapse of an ordinary man just trying to get by. Culminating in a powerful revelation. His load becomes his burden.
