A beautiful sophisticated female, Catherine (Elvire Audray) returns to her parent's plantation in the Amazon for her 18th birthday. To celebrate they take a boat trip through the untamed jungles where her parents are barbarically murdered and beheaded. Barely surviving the attack, Catherine is captured by a tribe of Amazonian Head Hunters, brutalized, devirginized, beaten, humiliated, raped and sold into slavery. One of the tribe's warriors becomes her only salvation, and helps Catherine execute her lust for revenge.
In the tradition of cannibal-themed exploitation films from Italy comes AMAZONIA (aka WHITE SLAVE). On trial for murder, long-missing heiress Catherine Miles narrates an amazing and harrowing tale to reporters about her disappearance. After graduating from her boarding school at the age of 18, Catherine joins her parents in South America for a vacation. But during a trip down the Amazon, their boat is attacked and everyone is brutally slain by natives, except for Catherine. Captured by the tribe, she is subjected to humiliation and torture, managing to survive by adopting the natives' grotesque cannibalistic customs and with the help of one warrior who falls in love with her. The entire time, however, she plots her revenge for the death of her parents. Featuring plenty of nudity and gore to satisfy fans of the subgenre, AMAZONIA is comparable to films like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.
