Synopsis
Three Europeans in the crisis zone of Eastern Congo. They want to help, but their situation is complicated. Raul, a Spanish economist, realizes that his project funds are leading his Congolese colleagues into great temptation. Peter, from Germany, is fighting a losing battle to preserve his identity as an aid worker when he reaches retirement age after 30 years in Africa. And the relationship of the young Belgian Anne-Laure is put to the test when her Congolese boyfriend becomes a high-profile regime critic. Three personal perspectives on coexistence and cooperation between Europe and Africa – and the question: how helpful is the help of the West?
