Jules Verne's 1874 fantasy classic gets an inventive makeover with this new take on The Mysterious Island starring Lochlyn Monroe, Gina Holden, and Emmy Award-winner Pruitt Taylor Vince. At the height of the Civil War, five Union POWs seize a hot air balloon, and take to the sky. But just when they think they've escaped their captors, their balloon lands on an enigmatic desert island littered with mysterious refuse. Setting out to explore the island, the soldiers meet Abby (Susie Abromeit) and Jules Fogg (Gina Holden), two 20th Century pilots who crash landed on the island after passing through the Bermuda Triangle. Meanwhile, as a massive volcano swells in the distance, the desperate survivors band together to fend off savage pirates and otherworldly monsters. But just when it looks like all hope for escaping this treacherous enclave is lost, the heroic Captain Nemo (W. Morgan Sheppard) appears, and conceives a plan to help everyone find their way back home before the volcano erupts, sending the entire island plummeting to the depths of the ocean.
