Claudia washes up on the island, Mother finds her at the stream

"Across the Sea" opens on some wooden wreckage floating in the Ocean. A woman named Claudia surfaces a grabs a floating piece of wreckage. She looks behind her and sees the island not too far away.

We next see her laying on the beach where she is awoken by the the water coming in. She stands up supporting her belly, and we can see that she is pregnant, and quite far along.

Next, we see her making her way to a stream in the jungle and goes to drink some water. She sees a reflection in the water and is startled. She looks up to see the nameless character referred to as Mother. In Latin, Mother offers to help her since she is hurt. Claudia is frightened, but then thanks. her.
