WHAT KIND OF MAN WOULD RISK HIS LIFE BY TRAVELLING TO THE MOST SAVAGE JUNGLE IN THE WORLD TO RESCUE A BOY?
For ten years, engineer Bill Markham (Powers Boothe) has searched tirelessly for his son, Tommy, who disappeared from the edge of the Brazilian rainforest. Miraculously, he finds the boy living among the reclusive Amazon tribe who adopted him. And that's when Bill's adventure truly begins.
For his son (Charley Boorman) is now a grown tribesman who moves skillfully through this beautiful-but-dangerous terrain, fearful only of those who would exploit it. And as Bill attempts to "rescue" him from the savagery of the untamed jungle, Tommy challenges Bill's idea of true civilization...and his notions about who needs rescuing.
