When a woman hires a professional hunter and trackers to find her father who has disappeared in Africa, the group becomes the prey of poachers.  

A young American woman is challenged to live up to a male standard of toughness when she hires a professional hunter and an arrogant Maasai tracker to help her find her terminally ill father and three other scientists who are studying chimpanzees and their connections with AIDS.

But the rescue mission quickly turns into a struggle for survival when their paths cross that of a cunningly brutal Frenchman and poaching gang who will not let anyone foul their bushmeat operation.
