Blue Lagoon: The Awakening is a 2012 American made-for-television film that premiered on Lifetime on June 16, 2012.

Emma and Dean are two high-school students on a class trip to Trinidad to build a school for less fortunate children and to explore the island. The two have little in common. During a boat party, Emma falls overboard when the party is interrupted by a police raid and Dean jumps into the water to save her. Dean then severs the rope attaching the dinghy to the party boat as he doesn't want to get into any more trouble than he already has. The pair drifts to a deserted island, avoiding dangerous rocks by using the one paddle in the dinghy. Back home, their parents have been alerted that the pair was last seen on the party boat, and the parents desperately search for them. Wondering if they will ever be rescued, Emma and Dean must rely on each other to survive. Together they learn to build a fire, fish, and find food. At first they are friends, but eventually their bond evolves into a romantic and intimate relationship. After being stranded for over 100 days, they are rescued by a tourist helicopter and taken back. They are met by family, friends, and the media. Emma is thrust back into a more popular position in school while Dean, still somewhat of an outcast, still longs for her. Adjusting back to their everyday lives, their relationship becomes somewhat strained and distant. Emma attends the prom, and Dean eventually decides to go as well after a little push by his father. At the prom, Emma spots Dean outside, watching her through the window as it's pouring rain on him. Emma goes out to meet him after encouragement from her best friend Lizzie. Emma and Dean kiss passionately and then dance together.
