What started off as a dare becomes something far more dangerous, when six children on a geography trip find themselves cut off by the sea. Not only that, but it’s the dead of night and Skull Island is rumoured to be haunted. One of the boys is injured and it transpires that another can’t swim. Soon, getting back before the teachers find out they’re gone is the least of their worries.
