True story about four medics who lie seriously wounded in the jungles of Mexico, after their plane crashes. Some are near death, and the only hopes of being saved from death are in the hands of a group of nurses with little medical experience. Meanwhile local bandits threaten to prevent the nurses from getting their medical supplies to the wounded medics as a violent drugs war wages around them.

5 student nurses who decide to work in a remote Mexican medical station deep in the rain-forest where one of their three planes force lands in the jungle causing critical injuries. The others soon reach the crash site but not before scavengers make off with all the medical supplies, but the real story is the attempt to get the injured to safety and into a proper medical facility.
The single disc goes to main menu offering play, scene selection and special features [trailers, film background, the stars, credits] but offers no audio or subtitles options. Based on an incident in 1991, the film starts with plenty of Latin American atmosphere and eye-catching scenery but seems unclear which path to tread, a sentimental journey of self discovery or a tense and hazardous rescue mission. The threat from the army and drug cartels was hinted but never really materialised and the ruggedness and danger of the terrain never really struck home.
With no swearing or nudity this is a PG due to some intense scenes of trauma. It’s a decent enough tale of getting through adversity even when you know you’re inexperienced and are out of your depth, but it lacked the creative writing that should have generated realty tense moments and has a feel of a dramatised documentary. But as a lazy afternoon or evening family drama it just makes a ***** view, just don’t expect too much.
