Synopsis

Riva is an operator, a man with charm and ambition in equal measure.  Kinshasa is an inviting place.  With petrol in short supply in DRC’s capital, he and his sidekick pursue a plot to get hold of a secret cache – barrels of fuel they can sell for a huge profit.  Of course they’re not the only ones who want the stuff.  Cesar is a ruthless, sharply dressed foreigner thriving in Kinshasa’s lawless streets.  A female military officer joins the fray.  Even the church will betray its tenets for a piece of the action.  But Riva’s main nemesis is Azor, a crime boss in the classic style:  big, decadent and brutal.
