French social worker Therese Bourgoine is among those taken to a jungle island, with the Filipino army in hot pursuit. With the army at their heels, the captors and their hostages are constantly on the run through dense jungle terrain, trying to avoid the bullets and artillery salvos fired indiscriminately at them.
