Watched by a hungry vulture, a child plays with cockroaches in the dusty street of a South American shanty town. So begins one of the most nerve-wracking and suspenseful films ever made, as four desperados take on a suicidal mission to drive two trucks full of nitroglycerine along precipitous, pot-holed roads. As the tension mounts, this journey to hell is propelled to its misanthropic conclusion by a truly unsettling score.
