It’s big news when African peace activist Joshua Hakizimana – famous for saving hundreds of people from Rwandan genocide – accepts a position at the University of Madison, Wisconsin. Then a young girl is found murdered on his doorstep. For local police detective Ishmael, an African American in a white town, it seems like the kind of crime that happens in an area where the Ku Klux Klan still holds rallies. But then he gets a mysterious phone call relaying that the truth is in Nairobi. The call starts a journey through the slums of Nairobi, where oil money rules.
