Eight teen guerrillas watch over a kidnapped American doctor and a milk cow. What initially seems like a game turns into a mythical struggle for survival due to an unanticipated event.

For the teen soldiers in a remote mountaintop setting somewhere in South America, their task is initially a kind of party. The young rebels laugh and horse around, while sexual tension pervades the air. But when their conscripted milk cow dies and their American hostage tries to escape, the adventure takes a grim turn. This mythical, wild thriller about leadership and survival instinct in an almost alien scenery has been compared toLord of the Flies and Apocalypse Now. Granted a Special Jury Award at Sundance.
