When Columbian revolutionaries kidnap an American engineer, his brother and friends, faced with official inaction, hire a mercenary and mount the rescue operation themselves.
The surrounding area of Veracruz, Mexico included rivers and jungle which figured prominently in the story. The filmmakers added several features to the landscape. They built two jungle airstrips for the small planes used to transport the American would-be rescuers. The fields were constructed to appear as if they had been around for a long time. The company also constructed an elaborate jungle compound, headquarters for Carlos Ochobar (Guillermo Ríos), the renegade revolutionary who kidnapped Harry and the American ambassador to protect his lucrative contraband trade, and is willing to kill if necessary.
The Indians say that if you spit after a close call, you'll be protected in the future.
