Eating Buccaneers could be described as The Office meets Lord of the Flies. It's a feature film comedy about four self-absorbed advertising executives and one officious client who crash-land their charter plane into the north woods. They survive the crash, but can they survive each other?

There's Doug, the irreverent, hot-shot copywriter with writer's block; Vanessa, the new-age art director with a knack for picking the wrong men; Jerry, the A-type VP of Account Services with a secret agenda; Andrea, his perky junior account executive with wilderness survival training; Stewart, the brand manager who can't make a decision without a focus group; and the mortally-wounded pilot who refuses to die.

With nothing more than a box of Buccaneer chocolate bars, the group sets out to rescue themselves with dubious survival skills and even worse team-building abilities. As days pass, surprising revelations begin to mount as the Buccaneer bars begin to disappear. Unknowingly, each person has embarked on a third-class journey through hell that will help them to discover what's really important in their lives-that is, if they don't kill each other first.
