Here’s a premise for you. Hearing that a volcano, named La Soufriere is about to erupt on an island in the Guadeloupe and that the whole island has evacuated except for one single man who refused to take refuge, Mr. Herzog assembles a film crew of 3 and gets to the place right away looking for the answer to the obvious question: why didn’t the man leave?  

The quest is worthwhile depending on how the answer rings your bell. The man they find is asleep under a tree, cradling a cat.
