All men are created equal... then, a few become firefighters.

JUNGLE (2017)
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russell, Yasmin Kassim, Joel Jackson, Jacek Koman, Lily Sullivan, Angie Milliken, Luis Jose Lopez and Joey Vieira. Directed by Greg McLean.

In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.

Jay must pull his life together and bury his personal differences with young local cop Josh, so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.
