Stéphane, fresh out of college, has gone to work for a powerful industrial consortium. He is soon put in charge of negotiating an important contract in the Congo, and sets off for Africa. But once there, he discovers a cynical and corrupt world beyond anything he could have imagined. His destiny is altered forever when he crosses the path of Violette, a Congolese child hunted by a powerful rebel chief. On his journey, he will also meet Dr. Denis Mukwege, real-life Congolese gynecologist whose activism and medical work won him the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize.
