In this somewhat allegorical drama, five men, two women and a dog are the sole survivors of an airplane crash into the desert. The men are as mixed a lot as one could hope to find; the women (one young, one mature) are as level-headed a pair as one could hope to find. Conflict between the men breaks out almost immediately, as the bible-thumping macho hunter cannot abide the Scottish homosexual and his lover; the adolescent young man wants to have sex with somebody, preferably the younger woman; and the biologist wants to quieten things down but is otherwise unable to contribute anything. By the film's end, all the men have done unspeakable things to one another while the women remain above the fray.
