This is a harrowing true story of adventure and survival. Four backpackers meet in Bolivia and set off into the rainforest on a dream expedition, lured by the promise of uncharted villages and forgotten tribes hidden in places tourists only dream of seeing. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime quickly becomes a struggle for survival when they get lost in the wilds of the Amazonian jungle. The group splits up after disagreements, and Yossi and Kevin try to find their own way without a guide. When a terrible rafting accident separates the two men, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone in one of the most unpredictable environments on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his skin begins to rot from his feet during raging storms, he wonders if any of them will make it back alive. Told with gripping immediacy, it’s an extraordinary, terrifying tale that you won’t be able to put down.
