Lord of the Flies

When a plane crashes on a remote island, the only survivors – a group of well-behaved schoolboys – assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of tropical birds and blue seas. At night, their dreams are haunted by terrifying visions of a beast. As their sense of order fades away, their childish fears deepen into something darker and more primitive. Those games they used to play – those innocent games – take on a horrible significance…
