Flight 29 Down is the name of the small, chartered plane that carries a group of 11 across the South Pacific for an eco-camping class trip to a desert island in Micronesia. Before they can join the rest of their class at the destination, 29 DWN malfunctions and the pilot/camp counselor has to make an emergency crash landing on a remote island somewhere in the South Pacific. With nothing but their camping gear, a limited amount of resources, and each other, the group tries to come to grips with the situation that challenges them with intelligence and instinct. As they confront the false preceptions they have of themselves and one another, the group realizes that they must learn how to live and work together in order to survive. The show carries a powerful social-emotional message tha draws upon the complexities of human behavior and social relationships, in which adolescents struggle to define themselves and their roles in a social group, while learning how to work together to deal with the harsh reality that faces them.
