The films chronicles the story of Walker children on their adventures in the Lake District with the goal of claiming a remote island for themselves. Heading over there on the boat "Swallow", they soon discover they’re not alone. A gang of rebellious children, the Blacketts also known as the "Amazons", have set up camp there, and a battle for the island begins. But with Britain on the brink of war and a "secret agent" looking for the Blackett children's uncle, real battles aren’t far away, and their childhood paradise is turned upside-down.
