This revolutionary series tests the human need for companionship under extreme circumstances as each individual learns there are other castaways out there, but are unaware of how many, their locations, or when they will be rescued. This visually stunning reality series follows 12 diverse individuals as they're dropped alone throughout various islets in Indonesia and challenged to survive among washed-up luggage, scattered resources and abandoned structures. The only way to leave the remote islands is to persevere long enough to be rescued or to quit. As dramatic situations unfold, the series flashes back to the real lives of each participant in documentary fashion, demonstrating haunting parallels to the lives they left behind.
