A man is beat up and abducted then forced to walk through the Mojave Desert by a second man who lets him stop only to torture him more. He chains his arms around a saguaro cactus, buries him up to his neck in dirt, lashes him to the hood of his truck, and more fun stuff. This movie is basically all about torture. The tortured guy is walking in the desert late one evening when he sees a Desert Tortoise. We see him bend over it, then they cut to him sitting by a fire at night roasting and eating the tortoise in the shell. He pulls the hot shell apart with his hands. In the morning, he wakes up next to a shell that is bleached out and completely picked clean. He must have been really hungry....

The first turtle we see is a Desert Tortoise, but there's no need to freak out that the filmmakers cooked an endangered animal because the shell he ate from is a different kind of turtle with a smoother shell, probably a Red-eared Slider.
