The story of a group of young New Zealand school boys. Because one of them is the nephew of a ship captain, they win the opportunity to go on a sailing trip. Some pirates (Forbes and Pike) are looking for a boat so they can go and find treasure on a deserted island. They manage to be recruited as crew members on that same boat as the school boys. After a mutiny, the pirates take over the boat and take the young boys as hostages. Helped by O'Brian, the young kids manage to escape from the pirates with the boat. After a storm, they have to land on a deserted island. They have learn to live together in harmony if they want their community to survive, despite the rivalry within the group. But is this island really a deserted one? And can they really get away from the pirates?Written by

Adapted from a Jules Verne novel, this TV series : "Deux ans de vacances" is one that I saw when I was young on TV and that, more than 25 years after, I still remember with great nostalgia and great pleasure. The greatest about this show is the music : the intro sailer song and also all the ambient music. There is also something about childhood and pirate stories : some kids who have to fight against pirates, find themselves on a treasure island. As Jules Verne concludes in the novel : the kids started the adventure as kids and ended it as men. Some of them start as very competitive school fellows and become friends for life at the end. Great story about friendship. Saw it several times on french TV when I was young...that was a long time ago. I wish I had a DVD copy of it. To discover.
