    An adaptation of Johann David Wyss`s The Swiss Family Robinson. Having been accused of spying for Napoleon against the British, David Robinson (Liam Cunningham), along with his wife (Brana Bajic), daughter Sarah (Bonnie Wright) and three sons, Fritz (Jesse Spencer), Ernst (Neil Newbon) and Jacob (Charlie Lucas) is assigned to a jail ship bound for an Australian penal colony. Tragedy strikes mid-voyage when they are blown off course by a violent storm. Eventually the family is washed up on the sands of a tropical island near New Guinea. On the shore are provisions from the wreckage; in the flourishing jungle is a fresh-water stream and in their hearts is the belief that they will be rescued.
    As days turn into months and months into years, the Robinsons not only accept their fate, they embrace it. In this idyllic Eden they are together and happy; they have conquered the elements and believe that they can survive anything. But the atmosphere on the island begins to change. Unsettling signs of a mysterious island tribe are uncovered and a ship, manned by bloodthirsty pirates, looms on the horizon. Bracing themselves for the unexpected, the family soon finds their paradise under siege, their blissful dreams at risk and their future as unpredictable as the jungle they once called home.
