You are the pilot of a firefighting plane that drops water on dangerous wilderness fires. During a long range training mission, your plane suddenly loses all power and radio communications. You crash land in the jungle, miraculously surviving the crash without any serious injuries. Without an emergency signal to home in on, rescuers may never find you. It’s up to you to make the long trek back out of the jungle, surviving using your wits.
