Riva is a small time criminal who has just returned to his hometown in Congo with a major score: a fortune in hijacked gasoline. With wads of cash, Riva spends his time entranced by a beautiful girl he meets in a nightclub and escaping a relentless crime lord who is searching for his stolen gasoline.
This vibrant film won awards around the world, and brings the city of Kinshasa to life on the screen as a melee of lawless shantytowns, bordellos and nightclubs.
