The witty Nonni and the stuck-up city-boy Harry are the only ones to survive a massacre of a gang of poachers among the gamekeeper's family on his lonesome farm in the savanna. Now the ruthless murderers are after them as the only witnesses. Without a means of transportation, the only way to escape is to walk through 2000 kilometers of Kalahari desert with the help of the African bushman Xhabbo. On the months-long journey ahead they not only become good friends against their differences, but also realize that every one of them has strength and skills that are required to survive. Written by

Thrown together on an incredible African adventure, they have only one hope for survival... each other.

Did You Know?
The film started production with René Manzor
as director. About three weeks into filming, he was fired, along with cinematographer Pal Gyulay
and several other crew members, after Disney executives viewed the initial dailies. Among other things, the footage was severely out of focus; this was blamed on both Gyulay (who was described as "in over his head" and "out of his league") and the production's older set of Panavision anamorphic lenses. Executive producer Kathleen Kennedy
originally asked Mikael Salomon
to take over as cinematographer (she had shown him an early draft of the script, which he loved, while they were working together on Always
(1989), and he asked her to remember him if there was a chance for him to shoot it). However, Steven Spielberg
pushed for Salomon to be offered the job of director, knowing that he had been wanting to move from cinematography to directing for some time. After accepting, Salomon asked Juan Ruiz Anchía
to be the new cinematographer, and rush-ordered a set of Panavision's newer, sharper Primo anamorphic lenses. See more
