Four children, who dream of escaping from the tedium of a summer holiday, are overjoyed when they finally get permission to camp on their own on a remote island in a vast lake. But when they arrive, they discover they are not alone and a desperate-yet-whimsical battle for ownership of the island ensues. Simultaneously, the dangers of an adult world on the brink of war encroach on their paradise in the form of a mysterious pair of Russian spies on the tail of the enigmatic Jim Turner. The children must band together to save a family member and learn skills of survival, responsibility, and the all-important value of friendship. -- (C) BBC Films, 2016, UK.
