In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries.

I left Israel in 1980 after three years in the army. I was desperate to escape the well-worn path. High school, university, work, marriage, kids. Not me. I wanted to be different. To experience the extraordinary. And to enter the unknown, discover lost tribes, hidden treasures, the darkest heart of the jungle. Which is why, of course, I ended up in Bolivia, South America.

Refreshing break from the world rotting in Marvel excrements
I've been lookign for a story.
Tired of all the nonsense of the recent crap, filled with CGi and nothing else.
Jungle gives you a story. Think about what you see, and this one becomes a masterpiece.
Don't look for giant apes or crodiles, this one is all about a human soul and friendship against the mother nature. Simple and beautiful
