An Asian Prince is washed up on Butterfly Island in the Great Berrier Reef. He was in his ship when a mutiny occured to overthrow him and hold him for ransom. However he escapes and gets washed ashore on Butterfly Island. Here he meets three kids and their dad who help him. He does their homework and they give him food. The story goes on about how he escapes being detected and how he finally returns. The footage includes stunning tropical beaches and islands.

The other two mini-series (three total) feature Butterfly Island as a tropical résorte and its daily happenings.

Overall a great movie for kids and also spectacular scenery with a good story line.
