There was a plane full of children that crashed, all of them under the age of 12. They ended up on an unknown island in the Pacific Ocean. The boys need fend for themselves and they all had to figure out how to survive. Eventually all of the boys soon turned into savages and went against one another by hurting the others. There are two main characters who took charge right away due to no supervision: Jack and Ralph. Jack was mainly in charge of hunting, and Ralph was in charge of shelters.
