Reminiscent of the popular novel "The Lord Of The Flies," the incredible story of six Tongan castaways is as real as they come. Back in the 1960s, six boys aged 13 to 16 stole a boat and left their home of Tonga in hopes of making a 500 mile trip to Fiji. The boys, who had limited resources and no sailing experience, instead shipwrecked on the uninhabited island of 'Ata. It was there they ended up being stranded for 15 months. Miraculously, all six boys survived and eventually returned home to Tonga.
One of those survivors, Kolo Fekitoa, had a lifelong dream of returning to the island. Before his death, he fulfilled that dream by making the journey back to 'Ata with explorer Alvaro Cerezo in 2015. The two spent 10 days living the exact same way the castaways had, and Alvaro's now releasing both a documentary and book later this year about the unforgettable experience.
