SYNOPSIS

On a remote mountain in Latin America, a young group of rebel soldiers — an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force known only as the Organization — keeps watch over a US hostage. The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge a hedonistic lifestyle by night. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate, as order descends into chaos and the strong prey on the weak.
