At the start of the film Tomorrow When The War Began, seven teenage characters seek independence from their parents when they go on a camping trip to an isolated location. On the trip, they can enjoy their freedom but they also face a range of potential hazards – from slips and scrapes to poisonous snakes.

It's so beautiful out here.

Let's do this again, back here in the same place.

The same people.
