A fisherman’s solitary existence is shattered when an airplane crashes into a nearby swamp. By rescuing two young Americans from wreckage, the fisherman, Countryman, becomes an unwitting player in a political plot devised by power-hungry Colonel Sinclair. The couple and Countryman, branded by Sinclair as enemy agent, are forced to flee into the Jamaican wilderness to elude capture. The peaceful Rastafarian hero shows the Americans his knowledge of land and sea, but when violence peaks, he shows that he is capable of unleashing an awesome, almost magical display of acrobatic hand-to-hand combat.
