A group of children, alone on a pacific island after the crash of their plane, must learn to leave together. Soon two factions form. The first one, lead by Ralph, tries to remember the codes of a civilized society and thinks of the ways to attract the attention of the outside world. The second group, lead by Jack, is more interested in hunting and having fun. The clash between them will inevitably end in blood.
