Verbatim Box Synopsis
Deep in the jungle of the Philippines an expedition makes camp for the night. Ten greedy people start out, but only two are to return.
The lust for gold, power and wealth drives men to madness and murder. A group of Japanese soldiers in the occupied Philippines, escorting a huge consignment of gold are attacked by natives and headhunters.
The three commanding officers hide the gold deep in a cavern, kill the porters and hide as their men are massacred.
They vow to return for the gold when the war is over...
A terrifying story of Lust and Love... Life and Death..
Ten greedy people on a safari of no return.
