Dr Lily comes to the island in search of a tree that has magical medicinal properties to cure ailments and to find it the two embark on a fun-filled adventurous journey on a humongous boat.

The `Jungle Cruise` features Emily and Dwayne and the other stars of the film. It puts on display essence the glimpses of the journey and the hurdles faced by them.

`Jungle Cruise` movie`s story centres around a brother (Jack Whitehall) and sister (Blunt) duo, who hire a boat captain (Johnson) to row them down the Amazon River as they are in pursuit of a tree believed to have healing powers.

Johnson promises his boat ride to be the cheapest yet the most thrilling for him is to take them through places infested with aggressive jungle natives. What adds a twist to their journey is a competing German expedition. Set in the early 20s and shot in some exotic locations, it is to be seen if Blunt, her brother and Johnson make it to the magical tree or not.
