They turned a lost island into an exotic paradise!

A family in route to New Guinea is shipwrecked on a deserted tropical island. They are forced to remain on the island because of the damage to the ship and the pirates that are roaming the islands. They create a home on the island (centering around a huge tree house) and explore the island and its wildlife. Plenty of adventure ensues as the family deals with issues of survival and pirates, and the brothers must learn how to live on the island with an uncertain future.

Fun Fact: As revealed by director Ken Annakin on the DVD commentary, the trapped zebra was subjected to electric shock treatment to make it move about, a practice that is now illegal in Hollywood movies.
