Seven go mad in Peru:

To seven young 20 somethings, it seemed the chance of a lifetime - an epic trek through the heart of the Amazon jungle.

For ten weeks two women and five men hacked their way through hostile rainforest, besieged by predatory insects and weak with hunger and fatigue.

Their mission? Not just to explore deepest Peru, but also to discover themselves. It was an experience that would test any friendship to the limit.
