Close to a tropical island a plane carrying young military cadets crashes into the ocean. The surviving boys and a badly wounded adult make a camp on the island where they have to fend for themselves. Civilised behaviour gradually disintegrates and two camps emerge; one led by the sensible Ralph, the other by Jack who likes to hunt pigs, use brute force and revert to primal behaviour. An allegorical story that shows how uncivilised human beings can be.
