Here is another from Anton
Group of 13 tourists - including Lisa and Andrey - come to some asian country but instead of relaxing vacation they face life threatening challenges.
First - shipwreck, then - desert island.
Fight for survival begins, and everyone does everything he or she is capable of to find a place in a new little society.
And Lisa is no exception. A big detective stories fan, she begins her own investigation to find the truth behind the accident. Learning the past of the survivors she discovers little connections that bind them all: some are blood related, some are ex colleagues, some are rivals. And only Andrey, Lisa's husband, avoids talking about his past - his plan to get rid of his own wife has failed. What's going to happen next is not under his control now. Something more powerful joins the game.
Here is a longer description, thanks to Jonathan.
At first glance, the protagonist of the series "The Island of unwanted people," Andrew Kamorin ( Dmitry Ulyanov ) gives the impression of a successful person. He has his own house, expensive car business - he heads the construction company is thriving, it is many years married to the beautiful Lisa ( Elvira Bolgova ).
But in fact it is not so perfect it looks like from the outside, and the existence of Andrew for some time began to resemble hell. Relationship with his wife soured long ago, and originated the mutual dislike of the spouses has led to what Kamorin started an affair, in which he fathered a child. Congestion on the job, a life for two families, suspicion of his wife and mistress reproaches Nelly ( Ravshan Kurkova ) - of all this he just dizzy.
Andrew trying to start a conversation about the fact that it was time to leave, Lisa said, threatened to take away his business in a divorce, because the money for his promotion gave her relatives. After such a declaration of their half, and Andrew does not sleep and appetite.
But his best friend and business partner, Gennady Bykov ( Maxim Lagashkin ) proposed a solution to the problem - just get rid of Elizabeth. No, he was not called for the massacre of her, his proposal was a much more sophisticated, but also more humane - to send Lisa to a desert island. Not permanently, but for several years, which would be enough to recognize a woman missing, after which her legal spouse could inherit her condition and the proportion of shares, and then to legalize his secret family.
Andrew tormented doubt, but his wife, having heard stories of her best friend Vicky ( Vitalina Bible ), she started talking about that did not stop them alone to go on a cruise to exotic countries to the new situation to try to revive the faded sense. And then Andrew said Gennady, it was time for decisive action.
No sooner said than done. On the part of the profits of the company has acquired Gene island in the Pacific, went there, made the necessary preparations, and all agreed with the local daredevils.
After that, they have created a travel agency with Andrew-by-night "happy path" through which distributed vouchers to those whom they or their friends thought unnecessary in your life. In addition to Lisa Kamorin, their number included genes stepfather, Albert N. ( Alexander Pankratov-Cherny ), psychic Alexandrina ( Nellie Millet ), son of autism known actor Volzhanskogo ( Andrei Kharitonov ), Paul ( Sergei Chirkov ) and his nurse-governess, Lida ( Yekaterina Stulova ), the killer, nicknamed Pertussis ( Paul Trubiner ), member Savely Rybakov ( Alexander Roebuck ), philologist Veronica ( Julia Silaeva ), a family of farmers Zhukov - Peter (Igor Vorobiev ) and Mary I. ( Ludmila Stepchenkova ), Vadim ( Constantine Milovanov ) and his teenage daughter Kate ( Galina Zvyagintsev ).
According to the idea of fellow adventurers, dozens of unsuspecting people should go to sea on pleasure boats and attacked by pirates, with the result that they would be on the same piece of land purchased by Gena middle of the ocean, where the new Robinson was brought everything to live for a long time.
To make it look convincing in the trip, along with Lisa went to Andrew, who was bribed by Gena "pirates" were allegedly taken hostage, and then, bringing to the mainland, with the world to release all four sides.
However, as often happens in complex multi-pass scam, things did not go as planned. Instead rid of her and her faithful companions in misfortune, in a perpetual reference and fly back home, Andrew found himself with the rest on the ocean waters lost in the ill-fated island.
