DESCRIPTION: (from MyNetworkTV's web site) Alicia Leigh Willis ("General Hospital) stars as Elizabeth Wakefield, the youngest daughter from the affluent Wakefield family. Sparks fly when she meets Captain JD Bruce, portrayed by Carter MacIntyre ("ER"), but tensions arise when their plane crashes in the jungles of Guatamala and the two must depend upon each other for survival. Despite their obvious differences, the two fall in love as JD heroically saves Elizabeth from the dangers that lurk outside of civilization. John Aprea ("Knot's Landing") is Lionel Wakefield, the head of the Wakefield family, who is very generous to his five children. Damian Wakefield, portrayed by Race Owen ("Passions"), is the vindictive oldest son who plots to take control of the Wakefield family empire. He will stop at nothing to reach his goals, even if it means sabotaging every attempt to save his sister, Elizabeth, from the jungle. Theresa Russell ("Spider Man 3") is Jordan Wakefield, the estranged wife of Lionel who returns to claim her right as the heir to the family fortune when she learns of the family tragedy. Other members of the Wakefield family include Annalynne McCord ("The O.C.") as the wild child eldest daughter, Loren Wakefield; and, Robert Buckley ("Fashion House") as the sweet natured son, Matthew Wakefield. When Elizabeth and JD return home from their adventure in the jungle, their romance is tested by the pressures of society and by tragedy that continually strikes the Wakefield family.
