Four travelers meet in Bolivia and set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but what begins as a dream adventure quickly deteriorates into a dangerous nightmare, and after weeks of wandering in the dense undergrowth, the four backpackers split up into two groups. But when a terrible rafting accident separates him from his partner, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone against one of the wildest backdrops on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map, or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his feet begin to rot during raging storms, as he loses all sense of direction, and as he begins to lose all hope, he wonders whether he will make it out of the jungle alive.

The basis of an upcoming motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, Jungle is the story of friendship and the teachings of nature, and a terrifying true account that you won’t be able to put down.

A young Israeli adventurer, decides not to follow the worn path. He wants to experience the unknown. His dream is to find his way deep into the uncharted and be the first to discover a tribe that wasn’t yet explored. In the colonial part of La Paz, Bolivia Yossi is sensing he is followed by the rugged looking older European man. Karl Ruprechter an Austrian geologist the man introduces himself.  This is the man Yossi has been looking for for over a year. Karl promises to take Yossi to the Toromonas the elusive tribe that evades contact, deep in the upper Madidi, there’s gold nuggets in the river. Yossi is sold. When two of his best friends Kevin the tough American Photographer  and Marcus the sensitive Swiss School teacher try to stop him from risking his life, Karl the manipulator turns things around and the foursome leaves civilization in search of the mystery of the jungles. A month later they are at eachother’s throats. The social masks have shuttered they see themselves naked and raw. The group breaks into two. Marcus follows Karl up tributary, they are never seen again. KEvin and Yossi build a raft and shooting white water they enter a canyon and explode on a huge rock, in the debris they lose each other. Alone and bare to the bone Yossi’s life long dream has turned into his worst nightmare. No knife, no gun, no food and in the midst of a massive rainy season – one man is tested to the utmost extreme and survives against all odds. It is a story of self discovery and redemption. Alone for weeks in the forest the ordeal is beyond imagination. The amount of punishment inflicted upon him is utterly horrific, jaguars, deadly snakes, hatching worms under his skin, falling from a cliff, attacked by man eating termites, sunk in sticky swamps, burning alive by thousands of fire ants and yet miraculously his spirit rises, in the forest he finds himself and his redemption.
