A plane crashed on an island - the boys survived. Piggy and Ralph are the first to meet. They use a conch to call the others.
They voted Ralph the leader over Jack, who was the leader of the choir. Ralph left Jack in control of the choir and hunting.
Ralph's first priority was to make fire - to help them get rescued.
The boys feared a Beast, and when hunting for it they found the dead body, and they thought it was it.
At first these hunts were unsuccessful, but Jack soon managed to kill a pig. He decides that Ralph shouldn't be chief, and starts a new tribe. Most boys follow and Ralph is left with Piggy, Simon and Samneric.
The boys start to disagree on priorities: Ralph builds shelters with Simon helping while Jack and his group leave the fire to hunt. It goes out and Jack and Ralph argue.
Simon figures out that the beast is in the boys, and not a physical being, but is then murdered.
Roger kills Piggy during an argument between Ralph and Jack, and Jack burns down the island. Ralph has to run away from the boys.
When Ralph made it to the beach, he saw a team of people there to rescue the boys. All alive boys got to the beach.
