We'll let you know when this movie is showing again in London.
At an undefined point in the future, high in the mountains of South America, a group of child soldiers guard a lone hostage and await orders from a mysterious benefactor. When they're attacked and forced to retreat into the jungle, things take a truly primal turn.
