“Frequently misunderstood, it’s a world where one law governs everything: only the strongest will survive,” the official logline reads. “As the strangers’ worlds begin to unravel around them, they come to the realisation that every action, no matter how small, has a consequence. Portraying the city through compelling visuals whilst detailing the many perils of day-to-day life in inner city London, Jungle ultimately seeks to convey a bigger message about the true value of life.”
Jungle is scheduled to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 30. Watch the teaser above.
