An airpalne has an accident and a group of children that travel were the only ones that survived and they arrive on an island not knowing where they were going. Ralph and Piggy meet each other first and they find the conch.
With the help of the conch they all meet together. The conch is going to be the symbol of power in meetings and the one how has it is the one who talks. After a vote and a discussion, Jack became the chief.
They have discussions on what to do and each one has each idea. The little boy "littluns" says that he saw the beast, but Ralph insists it was a nightmare.
They separate and each one decide an idea, they make fire with Piggy´s speacs to call the attention of someone who can rescue them or even help them.
The fire from the muntain spreads all around through the forest below. Ralph thinks that the responsability of the fire was of Jack, they bothe get angry so they separate.
Jack is obsess with killing pigs and Roger always follows him. The separation makes two groups: Ralph is going to be the leader of one group and Jack of the other.
