Description:

Seven Australians and one New Zealander set out on an epic adventure to trek Papua New GuineaĆ­s remote Black Cat Track. As they make their first steps toward the track, they have no inkling of the disaster that will enfold them.
Situated to the north of the Kokoda Track, the Black Cat Track is reputed to be much more demanding than its more famous neighbour, and these intrepid trekkers are keen to test themselves against its gruelling terrain. They share an avid interest in WWII military history, and with some excitement they learn that the Black Cat Track is littered with evidence of the savage battles between Australian and Japanese forces. The trekkers are also keen to experience the culture of the local people.
Suddenly, events take a violent turn. Tribal tension erupts around them, and the trekking party is subjected to a horrifying attack. In its blood-stained aftermath a strong bond develops between the trekkers and the PNG porters.
Ultimately, this is a story about culture shock, tragedy, heroism, generosity, and of an unlikely yet enduring bond of friendship that has develop out of a shared traumatic experience.ed traumatic experience.
