Plot Synopsis

A modern-day retellling of the classic coming of age love story. Based on the feature films, which were based on the 1908 novel by Henry De Vere Stacpoole. Overachieving high school student Emma Robinson and slacker Dean McMullen find themselves on the same class trip to Trinidad. Though they have little in common, Emma and Dean attend a wild party on a boat, and when Emma falls overboard during a police raid, Dean jumps in to save her. The pair drift in a dinghy until they end up stranded on a deserted island. While their parents desperately search for them, they are forced to rely on each other for survival, and the more time they spend together the more they realize their attraction to one another. As days on the island become weeks and then months, they wonder if they'll ever be rescued or if their life on the Blue Lagoon will last forever. Back home, Emma's devoted mother and one of their high school teachers refuse to give up the search for the missing teens.
