Synopsis in English and Turkish

“After a group of Palestinian militants kidnap a wealthy Jewish-American boy for ransom, their plane crashes in the Amazon jungles as they make their getaway. Only the boy and an older militant survive. As the two wage a struggle to stay alive in the harsh environment, they gradually overcome their differences and form a deep friendship.”

They say hatreds run deep in the Middle East. This film will challenge that assumption with the claim that beneath the surface, all people have the power of compassion and empathy for each other.
