Shortly before her breakout role in Speed, future Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock starred in this scorching adventure filmed on location in the deadly streets and jungles of the Bolivian Amazon. Bullock portrays Alyssa Rothman, an American activist battling a group of ruthless developers out to destroy the rainforest and it's native population. But when a hotheaded photojournalist (Craig Sheffer of a RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT and ONE TREE HILL) arrives to investigate the murder of a local union leader, they will together uncover a conspiracy of betrayal, violence and passion. In a land engulfed by greed and threatened with ecological disaster, does any fire burn hotter than the truth? Juan Fernandez (THE COLLECTOR) and Judith Chapman (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS) co-star in this provocative drama from director Luis Llosa (THE SPECIALIST and ANACONDA) and Oscar.-winning producer Roger Corman (DEATH RACE, PIRANHA).
