Synopsis: At the dawn of the next World War, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of students. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilisation, the students can do anything they want. Anything. They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin, and evil. And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued. Lord of the Flies is a memorable portrayal of “the end of innocence, and the darkness of man’s heart.
