The idea of a story based on a FedEx plane crashing gave the company "a heart attack at first," but the overall story was seen as positive and the company saw an increase in brand awareness in Asia and Europe following the film's release.
In 1995, Chuck Noland is a time-obsessed systems engineer, who travels worldwide resolving productivity problems at FedEx depots. . A Christmas with relatives is interrupted when Chuck is summoned to resolve a problem in Malaysia. While flying through a violent storm, his plane crashes into the Pacific ocean. Chuck escapes the sinking plane and is saved by an inflatable life raft but loses the raft's emergency locator transmitter. He clings to the life-raft, loses consciousness, and floats all night before being washed up on an island. After he awakens, he explores the island and soon discovers that it is uninhabited.
During a first attempt to make fire, Chuck receives a deep wound to his hand. In anger and pain, he throws several objects, including a Wilson volleyball from one of the packages. A short time later he draws a face in the bloody hand print on the ball, names it Wilson, and begins talking to it.
The volleyball becomes a patient listener and companion to Chuck and he manages to escape from the situation.
This volleyball is the life coach...to Chuck...its listens and breaks..the hopelessness ...Watch the movie...it will motivate you..too
