A group brought together on a small jungle campsite in the Indian state of Assam, in order to film the declining tiger population. Vanessa, the lonely and somewhat naïve English woman who is adjusting to life a million miles away from what she is used to. James, her new husband, distrusting and unknowing of his wife's character. Sushayla is a beautiful and confident, Anglo-Indian nurse, who is searching for a better life for herself. Shanjila is the witty journalist brought in to report on the filming, who knows what she wants from a man. The head of the operation is the slightly pompous and self-centred, Justin. Janeswar, another Anglo-Indian who has proved invaluable to the group, and is looking for a lady of his own. Day to day life passes by on the campsite, as the camera crew get to know their fellow colleagues and chase after exclusive film of the elusive tiger. They also have to unwittingly live alongside the determined poachers, who advantage from the corrupt nature of the area.
