In the South American jungle, supplies of nitroglycerine are needed at a remote oil field. The oil company pays four men to deliver the supplies in two trucks. A tense rivalry develops between the two sets of drivers on the rough remote roads where the slightest jolt can result in death.

This film is part of our Cannes Palme d’Or Series.  Screenings are free to the public thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the South Orange Public Library.  Films will be introduced by Gerard Amsellem and a Q&A will follow the screening.  Refreshments will be served.
