1981 - RECCE, Henk Viljoen, is wrongfully declared KIA behind enemy lines. Abandoned by his superiors; it's a race for survival in which his mental and physical abilities are pushed to their limits, as he navigates his way through the treacherous Angolan war zone in an effort to make his way home to his loved ones.
After the South African National Defence Force wrongfully declares young RECCE Henk Viljoen dead behind enemy lines, it's up to him alone to use every skill and tool in his arsenal to make it back to his grieving wife. With the enemy hot on his trail and a lethal gunshot wound in his gut, Henk's chances for survival are looking slim as he navigates the treacherous war torn African landscape.Written by

Dissapointing version of such a specialized unit and the Border War
Having served in the SANDF and fortunate to have done national service with the Recces and saw their professional and fierce character including four months in the Caprivi, I was hoping to see this captured for once, well in a movie. It deserves to be properly shown and this movie didn't deliver for me. I even purchased the DVD to form part of my good collection of books on the same topic. Just couldn't get going with a story line.
