This awe-inspiring thriller is a breathtaking and epic vision. On a remote mountaintop, a rebel group of commandos perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) for a shadowy force known only as The Organization.

After a series of unexpected events drives them deep into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, their mission slowly begins to collapse. Set against a stunningly beautiful but dangerous landscape, this film will leave you both mesmerised and utterly gripped.
