Jack Pencroft, his wife Joanna and teenage son Herbert are arrested by Confederates for using their boat to smuggle slaves to freedom in Canada. British journalist Gideon Spilett is accused of spying when he is caught sketching an army observation balloon. All six meet in a Confederate jail and when threatened with the firing squad, make a daring escape under gunfire, taking off in a gas-filled balloon. A storm blows the balloon across America and out to sea. It eventually crash-lands on a volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean. The castaways meet with danger and must deal with a mysterious presence that seems to be controlling their lives. Their very survival depends on their ability to pit wits against Nemo, a genius teetering on the verge of madness.
