In this adventure, a courageous teen sneaks into the Philippines so he can find his missing brother whose plane went down in the jungle. The brother he seeks is a renowned investigative reporter who had gone to the islands to expose a ring of drug smugglers. When an American embassy official learns that the younger brother is in the Philippines illegally, he rushes into the jungle to find him. Meanwhile, with the help of a native guide, the young man continues his search. He is undaunted by the smugglers, angry government agents, and headhunters who pursue them. When he finally does find his brother, he is shocked to learn that the reporter has joined the smugglers. Fortunately, the older brother explains that he had simply gone undercover to infiltrate their ring so he could write a more effective expose.
