Adrenaline junkie and animal adventurer Donald Schultz literally descends upon the Southeast Asian country of Sri Lanka in the aftermath of a brutal civil war - he becomes the only civilian to skydive into the nation in two decades. Production of antivenin has taken a back seat in this war-torn country, and, as a result, more than 1,200 of its people are dying each year from snakebites. Donald's mission is a dangerous but lifesaving one: capture three of Sri Lanka's deadliest snakes - the spectacled cobra, the krait and the Russell's viper - and milk their venom so researchers can create antivenin. Donald then treks into the lowland forest in search of one of his favorite animals, a slender loris, a tiny primate with a bizarre toxic defense. Before his Sri Lanka mission is complete, Donald joins forces with dozens of men to find and relocate a rampaging rogue elephant that's terrorizing local villagers.
