Two groups of school children, used to battling it out in a game of hide and seek tag called ‘Survival', find themselves transported to a different land where they go looking for a more challenging adventure. This land is Cannibal Island! The group of boys and the group of girls compete against each other in a race to find the treasure. However, they are stalled along the way as they meet with many challenges native to the island, ranging from poisonous scorpions and giant ants, to groups of angry pirates and hungry cannibals. While the pirates chase after the children in search of their misplaced treasure, and the cannibals hunt for a tasty snack, the boys and girls must decide whether to work together - or keep the treasure all to themselves.
