An illegal immigrant is driven by obsessional desire and murderous revenge. From the surreal opening, it’s clear that this is no run of the mill look at immigration and exploitation. Amadou is an earnest, hard-working African who finds himself lost and alone in Brussels, where he becomes fixated with an attractive businesswoman. There are echoes of Taxi Driver as he is drawn down a path of self-destructive passion in which no one he comes into contact with will remain unscathed.
