Synopsis

Riva is a small time operator who has just returned to his hometown of Kinshasa, Congo after a decade away with a major score: a fortune in hijacked gasoline. Wads of cash in hand and out for a good time, Riva is soon entranced by beautiful night club denizen Nora, the kept woman of a local gangster. Into the mix comes an Angolan crime lord Cesar, relentlessly seeking the return of his stolen shipment of gasoline.

Per Theater Chart: Hat Trick for Tree
