Director Brillante Mendoza draws inspiration from real-life events to craft this tense drama about 12 tourists and Christian missionaries who are mistakenly abducted by armed Muslim Abu Sayyaf group, and forced into the Philippine jungle. As the victims and their kidnappers make their way through the jungle, they develop a symbiotic relationship that helps them to persevere as the environment grows increasingly treacherous.
