Storyline

Angola is on the brink of revolution. When talks break down between the government and the rebels, United Nations personnel must flee the country for their own safety. Jack, his son Tom, and their friends Kat and Gabriel are removing land mines from country roads. Hildy, a physician and Kat's mother, joins this foursome as they try to escape to the Namibian border. Rebel forces, including a faction led by the vicious General VanDamm, will do anything to stop them. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

A missed chance.
26 January 2002 | by (Málaga, Spain) – See all my reviews

The only tv movie (or movie) I know about Angolan's civil war - that is still going on after more than 30 years of horror - is a missed chance of getting a serious view about one of the most fascinating conflicts and countries worldwide. Having spent 5 months of my life working on relief in Angola, it is just frustrating seeing such a failure. But the redemption comes from showing a nearly realistic portrait of that situation, specially how the Unita guerrilla works. So... I recommend giving it a chance. I wonder where did they shoot this movie (it certainly looks similar to Angola, although not like Luanda's surrounding areas).
