Why in Database: The turtle appears in three forms in this movie. The first is the most classic appearance, a real turtle tramping down the street. The second is a symbol-embroidery worn on T-shirts by the heroes attending the local school. The third is in dialogue, one of the characters on the accusation that it he not fit the island, responds to the policeman that his family has lived on the island for six generations, from the time of “turtle nests”.
