    • Synopsis
    • At the end of the XIXth century, two young and inexperienced Portuguese colonizers, with a vague intention of civilizing the colonies, disembark in a remote part of the Congo River in order to coordinate a trading post.
      As time goes by, they become increasingly demoralized by their inability to profit from the ivory trade. A mutual feeling of distrust and misunderstandings with the locals isolate them at the heart of the tropical jungle. Facing each other, they begin a dramatic journey towards the abyss.
