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>

Very good movie
4 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was excellent, certainly one of the late Rodney Harvey's best performances, as the troubled son who learns a few big lessons. This movie was (and still is I suppose) very hard to find in video stores, and is available on and off again thru online stores. If you can find a copy though, don't hesitate to get it, because this really is a good movie.
