It begins as a publicity stunt: a singer parading a jaguar on a leash. But then the killer cat escapes into the heart of a large South American city and soon a woman is found torn to death. As the police search for the deadly jaguar, one man looks deeper - for a creature more terrible than any jungle beast...
