Death in the Garden

Amid a revolution in a South American mining outpost, a band of fugitives – a roguish adventurer, a local hooker, a priest, an aging diamond miner and his deaf-mute daughter – are forced to flee for their lives into the jungle. Starving, exhausted and stripped of their old identities, they wander desperately lured by one deceptive promise of salvation after another.
