    • Synopsis
    • Inspector Lou travels to Kinshasa in order to arrest Huang, a gangster he has been after for the past 30 years. There, he joins forces with a Congolese police officer, Ange.
      The two men have nothing in common and their working methods are completely opposite, they do not understand each other.
      When Huang finds out that Inspector Lou is in Kinshasa, he puts a price on his head. Inspector Lou finds out that Huang has a hit order out on him. Although he knows that the gangster is practically all‐powerful in this chaotic country, he decides to stay despite the risks. After having chased Huang for thirty years without any results, he would rather die in Kinshasa in a showdown than go back to China. The hit order on the Chinese man’s head brings the two police officers closer.
      Lou and Ange decide to live his last days as if in a state of grace and do extraordinary things. They defy Huang in his lair, barely escaping alive from a major shoot‐out. Afterwards, they go partying. Lou enjoys himself and behaves more audaciously with women than he ever has before, succumbing to an orgiastic frenzy. Ange falls in love with Jiang‐Li, Huang’s niece, and they share a great love story, despite the consequences their love could have for both of them.
      When Huang’s men attack Lou at his hotel, a tremendous shootout ensues. Ange fights side by side with Lou. Lou sacrifices his life to save Ange, and Huang celebrates his victory. However, Ange does not want to let it lie, and decides to avenge his friend. Thanks to the information provided by Huang’s niece, he organizes an ambush. He takes out all Huang’s bodyguards and is about to do the same with Huang, but decides against it.
      Ange arrests Huang and takes him back to China in the same plane with Lou’s body. Official funerals are celebrated in honor of Lou.
      Ange returns to Congo to find Jiang‐Li.
