Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
For their 20th wedding anniversary Kiyoko (Tae Kimura) & Takashi (Shingo Tsurumi) take a trip around the world. They encounter rainstorms and find themselves adrift in the Pacific Ocean until they wash ashore on a deserted island. 43 year old Kiyoko was an obedient wife in Tokyo, but on the deserted island she finds herself catching snakes to make food. Her husband has become weak and Kiyoko starts to believe he is useless.
One day, 16 men come to the island. They are a group of "freeters," who ran away from hard labor on another island. They name the island Tokyo Island and start a community life by making different camps: Shibuya, Koukyo, Juku, & Bukuro.
Not knowing if it was by accident or a malicious act, Kiyoko's husband Takashi falls down a cliff and dies. Kiyoko begins to live with Kasukabe (Ryuto Yamaguchi) like a married couple. Because of Kasukabe's jealous personality, Kiyoko is not allowed to be near the other men.
Six more Chinese men, who were attempting to illegally smuggle themselves to another country, comes upon Tokyo Island. The Chinese men are more efficient in certain endeavors like hunting for wild pigs. Kiyoko goes to the leader of the Chinese men Yang (Ryushin Tei) and gets meat from him. Kasukabe believes Kiyoko traded sex for the meat. He rushes out shouting "I will kill him!" but is found dead the next day. The other Japanese men become scared that the Chinese killed Kasukabe. Only Watanabe (Yosuke Kubozuka), the sole person not controlled by Kasukabe, laughs out loud that a killer may be among them.
Oraga (Tasuku Emoto) comes to Kiyoko and tells her that the Japanese men decided to choose her next husband by drawing lots. First she is confused, but then consents. On the day of drawing lots only 6 men vie to become her husband. As a result, kind GM (Seiji Fukushi) becomes her husband. GM lost his memory while floating in the Pacific and Kiyoko has feelings for him.
But, Kiyoko soon feels trapped among the Japanese men who makes all the rules and lives peacefully. On the other hand, the Chinese men live more adventurously making plans for their escape and building a small log raft. Kiyoko becomes more attracted to the Chinese men. Finally the Chinese men finish their raft. Their leader Yang tells Kiyoko that if she wants to be his girl she should get on the raft. At first Kiyoko says no, but she gets on the raft ...
