He tells his parents that it's time for him to leave their nest as a sign of his growth into full adulthood and he swims away with a trio of green turtles. The man and the woman spend the rest of their lives on the island, growing old but still much in love with one another. One night, the man sees the moon over the ocean for the final time and closes his eyes as the woman immediately realizes his sudden passing and grieves deeply. The next morning, she lies next to him with deep sadness, holds the man's hand one last time, and then transforms back into the red turtle and returns to the sea.
