When an explorer's quest for a diamond mine ends tragically in the Congo, his father and the operation's CEO sends Dr Karen Ross (Laura Linney) into the jungle to continue the hunt...maybe for his son, but definitely for the diamonds.
To keep her goal confidential, Dr Ross tags along with a devoted animal researcher (Dylan Walsh), who is Africa-bound to return his gifted gorilla Amy to her natural habitat. They are joined by a mercenary (Ernie Hudson) who acts as their guide and a money-hungry explorer (Tim Curry) searching for a fabled treasure in the mythical Lost City of Zinj.
