This treasure is her last chance to save her home.

Together the friends embark on a treasure hunt, through the dangerous jungle Noteka. With the gangster couple Nick and Cassi right on their heels, they rush through the jungle until Julian collapses. He was bitten by a toxic bug. The antidote, a rare herb, grows only miles away on a remote peak. As the friends finally arrive at the mountaintop, they are ambushed by Nick and Cassi. Only with the help of their loyal dog Timmy can they escape and save Julian’s life. However by then, the gangsters have run off with the treasure. A race against time begins, as the investor has already arrived at Joe’s village with a bulldozer ready to go…
