Synopsis: Paul is a research scientist who unintentionally runs into arms dealers who puts his family in peril.

Review: This film is really about the survival of two women and their bonding over the loss of a loved one. The older woman is teaching the younger one how to survive in this very hostile desert environment. In order for them both to survive they must over come their differences and work together. Danger is at every corner and recourses are limited. The two women are being hunted by arms dealers who want to leave no witnesses. Its a pretty meshed up situation to see these two in, really.

Josie (Maisie Williams) has gotten her self into some trouble involving drugs and her mother is worried. So the mother calls Paul (Stephen Dorff) and the two agree that he should take Josie and his girlfriend Tally (Svetlana Metkina) on a safari like tour in Africa in order to bond with his daughter because he has not been there for her as much as he should be. Paul wants them to study the hyenas with him.

Josie has a really bad attitude in the beginning of this film. She starts a lot of trouble and she can’t even appreciate spending time with her father. She feels as though the African desert has nothing to offer her. She doesn’t relies the value of the time she is spending with her family. But later in the film you can’t but help feeling bad for Josie and what she must be going through.

The cinematography is done well. There is good use of the wide shots in this movie. The landscape makes you feel like you are there with the characters. I really do like the survival aspect of this film. This film is pretty good.
