Martin and Hazel Quarrier are small-town fundamentalist missionaries sent to the jungles of South America to convert the Indians. Their remote mission was previously run by the Catholics, before the natives murdered them all. They are sent by the pompous Leslie Huben, who runs the missionary effort in the area but who seems more concerned about competing with his Catholic 'rivals' than in the Indians themselves. Hazel is terrified of the Indians while Martin is fascinated. Soon American pilot Lewis Moon joins the Indian tribe but is attracted by Leslie's young wife, Andy. Can the interaction of these characters and cultures, and the advancing bulldozers of civilization, avoid disaster? - IMDb

I feel it was much more than a good movie. It has comical,serious and sad moments. An epic of a movie but well worth the time to watch it.

I completely agree with "shadrach" on all three of the points he made.

A great film starring the charming Nilo Kivirinta. It is a shame that Nilo did not pursue his acting career further. This is an absorbing drama which needs a proper dvd release.

I have this movie and I think that "nukid1968" summed it up very well .

This is a long but very moving story. I must admit the reality of how the indians were treated near the end saddened me. The visualizations were so strong, but the ending scene, if it is still in the movie, shows the determination to survive. Life will go on. Good movie.
