Storyline

After the death of his mother, teenage Danny visits his father Matt Malloy on a lonesome farm in Australia, where he lives with a girlfriend and her daughter Stevie. The farm has been going bad lately, so Matt starts smuggling Marijuana for a drug connection. When Danny joins him on one of his flights, the two-seater crashes in the middle of nowhere. Since his father is wounded, he has to conquer the jungle alone in search for help. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

You do what you have to do

This movie has beautiful scenery of the mountains in Australia. It is a story about a person who finds the inner strength to save his father after an accident and getting stranded and lost. I love the part where he has hallucinations and in a cave. It gets a bit weird in places but all in all is a good movie. It shows that you can do whatever you have to do to get done what needs to be done. The native aborigine are portrayed in a mysterious way. They have some strange rituals that would have been more interesting if we found out more of what they were. The previous review is of a different movie by the same name. Too bad the reviewer didn't pay better attention.
