A group of adventurers hold up a gold mine in Guyana. The heist doesn't go as planned. During their getaway, the helicopter makes a crash landing in the jungle. They've made off with 600 kilos of gold... which they must now carry on their backs in a hostile environment. The gold becomes a burden. The six runaways (four men, two women) go off into the jungle. The climate, the insects, the fatigue, the threat of being pursued all contribute to make their long trek impossible. The jungle seems to close in on them. And the group's unity is eaten away by gold fever.
