A powerful drama which glimpses the savagery that underlies even the most civilized human beings.
After a harrowing plane crash, a group of school boys finds itself marooned on a deserted island. Realizing the minimal chances of being rescued the boys band together out of fear and desperation. In an attempt to recreate the culture they left behind, they elect Ralph to lead, with the intellectual Piggy as counselor. But Jack wants to lead, too, and one-by-one, he lures the boys from civility and reason to the savage survivalism of primeval hunters.
