Sent to a remote area deep in the jungles of Indonesia’s Papua, TV’s Catch & Release star Rick Stone and his film crew set out to do some extreme fishing in order to identify a creature preying on natives.

Stone and his team encounter more than carnivorous fish on the journey. The prehistoric-like surroundings present danger at every turn. It isn’t long before the purpose of boosting viewership and restoring network confidence with the first Reality TV Show are forgotten. Their survival becomes dependent on the ability to revert to animalistic behavior.

Rick Stone no longer cares about his show’s network ratings. All he wants now is to make it home . . . alive.
