When sixteen-year-old Alex’s parents ask him to deliver a mysterious package to their animal research camp in the Nepalese jungle, he and his twelve-year-old brother James do not have a clue about the trouble they are about to face. An unsuccessful ransom payment leads to an arduous journey through the crispy forests of the wild west of Nepal in pursuit of the terrorists who have captured their parents.
Even with the help of their friend Atti, how can three children rescue the parents from armed kidnappers?
