Reporter R.J. O'Brien, who works for an US journal, goes to the Bolivian rainforest. Rafael Santos, leader of the so-called Rubber Tappers, the resistance against deforestation of the rainforest, has been murdered. Shortly afterwards, the police present the innocent Indio as perpetrator. Unfortunately, he dies in his cell. O'Brian senses a story. With the help of of the peaceful environmental activist Alyssa Rothman, who worked for Santos, he starts searching for the real perpetrator. But the real perp is already on alert. The deeper O'Brian gets sucked into it, the more dangerous it gets. Very soon, he and Alyssa are caught in the middle between the cops, the Indians and the actual killer.
Besides the R-Rated Version, an Unrated Version has also been released in the US. But that doesn't make it better at all. Even die hard fans of Sandra Bullock better be careful here. On the one hand, there are some of the very rare nudity scenes of her in it. But then again, it doesn't change the fact that the movie is average. If anything. Who's still interested, should get the Unrated Version, due to a better quality of the images:
