After a journey across Europe, Aleksei reaches Paris in the hope of joining the Foreign Legion. In search of a new life, he will do anything to get the French passport he has been promised.
In the Niger Delta, Jomo is fighting the oil companies that threaten his village and the lives of his people. One day, with an armed group under his command, he abducts two French nationals. A Foreign Legion commando steps in, Aleksei at its head.
The encounter between the two men will not be what is expected. Aleksei’s and Jomo’s destinies will merge and survive beyond borders, bodies, life and death.
