Inspired by his trips to St. Barthelemy in the Caribbean, the story is described as a survivalist tale akin to Lost or Lord of the Flies.  Prince is quoted as liking “the idea of privilege turned on its head” and “when it comes to the fight for survival, clean water becomes more important than money”.
