In 1865, during the siege of Richmond, Virginia, prisoners of war Captain Harding, Neb and Herbert escaped in a balloon during a hurricane with two Confederate prisoners, Sergeant Pencroft and journalist Spilett. The storm takes the balloon to a mysterious island near New Zealand in the South Pacific. Captain Harding declares himself the leader of the group and they are looking for food. They discover that they are stranded on an island and are soon attacked by a giant crab, which represents their first meal. In the following days, they build shelter and find the island, which is inhabited by other giant animals. One day they find two castaways on the beach: the aristocratic Lady Mary Fairchild and her sexy niece Elena. Later, they find a suitcase of weapons and a sextant, and then the hut and the journal of a man who was once exposed by pirates on the island. When the pirates return to the island later, the Castaways are surprised to be assisted by Captain Nemo of the legendary submarine Nautilus. (Nemo - notorious for his war on slavery - was allegedly sunk and missing eight years ago.) When a volcano threatens to extinguish the island, everyone must plan an escape.
