R.A.A.F. pilots Dave Keating and Roger Smith hated each other to distraction, often putting their petty squabbles before their duty and their crew.
But when their Catalina crashes into the jungle of Japanese occupied Papua New Guinea, the survivors radio for help. Two days, they are told. Two days until back-up will arrive. Two days to survive the tropical heat, poisonous wildlife, booby traps, the merciless Japanese Corporal Tikeaki who hunts them... and each other.
