  • Encircled by a gigantic, perpetual and mighty storm system, lies hidden a small uncharted island in the South Pacific, that for many years, somehow, managed to defy discovery, remaining concealed from the outside world. Inevitably, as a topic of legend for many civilisations, the unobtrusive Skull Island not only is notorious for the great number of planes and ships that have gone missing there, but also for the uniquely complex and self-contained ecosystem, where according to mere speculations, time stands still merging effortlessly science with myth. So, without further delay and with the intention to make ground-breaking discoveries, however, utterly clueless of what would find there, an exploration and research team led by scientist Bill Randa and accompanied by Colonel Packard's squad, will boldly go where no man has ever gone before, completely cut-off from civilisation. Soon enough, as strange, reason-defying encounters with magnificent, yet unclassified species baffle the esteemed scientists, one thing will become quite clear: apparently, we humans, never owned this blue planet.
