The island is a metaphor for the Earth. It is a green, round island in the middle of the ocean.
In the middle of an endless ocean, where only the horizon can be glimpsed, an island suddenly appears. It is remote, mysterious, and thriving, and inhabited by a group of Boy Scouts. Brave and curious, the youngsters investigate their environment and live in complete oneness with nature. But a series of discoveries that initially bring joy and contentment end up causing arguments, and nature suffers. Will the Boy Scouts be able to reverse this situation before it is too late?
