Horror: Student activists travel to Peru to stop the demolition of a rainforest and the destruction of a tribal village, only to be captured by cannibals.
Justine (LORENZA IZZO) is a freshman college student looking for a good cause to support. She becomes enamored with Alejandro (ARIEL LEVY), the leader of a campus activist group who is planning to take a group of students to Peru and protest a multinational corporation's efforts to bulldoze acres of rainforest, forcefully remove a primitive tribe from its village, and mine the land for its energy reserves. Against her father (RICHARD BURGI) and roommate Kaycee's (SKY FERREIRA) objections, Justine agrees to go with the group on their risky crusade.

Joining them are Alejandro's girlfriend, Kara (IGNACIA ALLAMAND); his supportive friend and follower, Jonah (AARON BURNS); lesbian couple Samantha (MAGDA APANOWICZ) and Amy (KIRBY BLISS BLANTON); stoner Lars (DARYL SABARA); and tech expert Daniel (NICOLAS MARTINEZ). Bankrolled by a shady Peruvian entrepreneur named Carlos (MATIAS LOPEZ), the student-activists aim to chain themselves to the corporation's bulldozers to provoke a response from the armed militia the company has employed as protection, and then broadcast the ensuing confrontation live over the Internet.

On the flight out of Peru, the student-activists' plane crashes, and the survivors are immediately captured by the very tribe they came down there to protect. They soon learn that no good deed goes unpunished, and that the tribespeople are actually cannibals intent on killing and eating each of them.

Older teenagers may have some interest due to its young cast and taboo subject matter.
For aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language, and some drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
