This film re-enacts the true account of ace fighter pilot Charles O'Sullivan, shot down in the jungles of New Guinea during World War II. O'Sullivan survived thirty days in the jungle, encountered a native tribe while seeking help, and was forced to fight his way out of their village when they attacked him with the intent to eat him. He was then hunted through the jungle as he made his escape from their territory. Sully finds a friendly Australian outpost and was ultimately able to return home. Fifty years later, the wreckage of O'Sullivan's plane was discovered. When he attempted to visit the wreck site, Sully learned that the story of his encounter with the tribal warriors had turned into a local legend, and still being told among the local people. Would this endanger his life should he decide to return to the village and the site of the crash. This unique documentary takes you on a journey through the Pacific War into the jungle of New Guinea, re-living one soldiers harrowing and ultimately heroic experience during World War II.
