When the Noralty oil company ignores warnings about the dangers in the Colombian border area, eight of its employees (Canadians and one US Navajo) working on a pipeline in Ecuador are kidnapped by the well-organized guerrilla which demands a $20,000,000 ransom, refused by the concern, and forces them deep in the Amazonian jungle where they hide for the army. Forty long days of marching trough this green hell gets the hostages in such bad shape that they must finally be brought into an insurgent camp. The Canadian embassy, skeptic except for one RMCP sergeant, can only negotiate about the price... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


On one of the last nights of filming in Edmonton, the temperature was twenty below zero and the entire cast and crew were freezing, so heating bars were brought out and placed around the set. Between scenes, the cast would gather around them to warm up. However, no one noticed that the blue jumpsuits the leads were wearing might not be heat-resistant. It isn't visible in the final film, but at least one pair of blue jumpsuit pants had melted across the front during filming, exposing white lining. See more »

Insider's Perspective
2 April 2004 | by (Edmonton, AB) – See all my reviews

Well, I worked on this movie, and personally I think the actors did an excellent job all through. (They were, incidentally, not working under the best of conditions.) However, the editing is fairly terrible, and for that reason alone, I still don't understand why we won the Gemini. Especially if the subject interests you, I recommend seeing it; but know that it could have been better. Michael and company did well especially in the ending jungle scenes, for which I was not present, but some very good material nearing the end of the movie was unfortunately removed; Emily and the supporting cast performed excellently (at two o'clock in the morning, two days before Christmas, at twenty degrees below zero at the airport), and I was sorry to see those scenes cut from the final product.
