The Mercy of the Jungle


A thrilling road movie about a pair of Rwandan soldiers navigating both wilderness and personal existential crises while lost behind enemy lines between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. When experienced soldier Sergeant Xavier and fresh recruit Private Faustin are accidentally left behind by their battalion just as Congolese militia begin swarming the area, they only have each other. As they embark on an odyssey through a hostile landscape teeming with enemy patrols, wildlife and mercenary mining operations, the men must learn to rely on each other's very different skill sets if they are to survive.
