The project is based on an article by Joshua Davis published in Wired magazine about the wild true story of rogue tech magnate John McAfee, creator of the McAfee Antivirus software, who cashed-in his fortune, left civilization and moved to the jungle in Belize.

He set up a compound of guns, sex and madness there.
