to search for help. But above all they must stay alive!
Cave-In: A group of kids on a field trip on a coastal island
are abandoned after an earthquake hits and the fort they studying
collapses. At first they are trapped inside but after escaping the
cave-in, they realize debris from the collapse has destroyed all of
their supplies. How long can they survive there? Will anyone come rescue
