Look under the boot handle near the number plate light and you'll see a hole where you can use your key to open the boot. Then insert the key to open the trunk. Let me know if you find it.

The key will not work that is why I want to jump the car from under the hood

First I would try spraying some lube such as wd40 in the trunk key hole and working the key to free the tumbler. If that fails open the hood and remove the fuse box cover on the fuse box mounted at the right front corner. There is a partially exposed battery cable connection on the left side of the fuse box. Carefully hook up the jumper cable to the exposed terminal and the ground cable to the engine. DO NOT TRY TO START THE CAR LIKE THIS! With the cables hooked up just press the trunk button to gain access to the trunk and properly charge the battery or jump start.Let me know how it goes.
