    • Synopsis
    • Amadou (35), an illegal African immigrant settles in Brussels, the capital of Europe, city of opportunity. Nourished by a tireless, positive attitude towards this new world, his lonely soul survives on small illegal day jobs and unsuccessful romantic attempts. When Raskov, an abusive landlord who makes his living on the misery of illegal immigrants, threatens to throw him out of his mattress room, the pressure increases for Amadou to find financial stability. Victim of a violent attack from a gang of North African boys, Amadou now finds himself without a home and mentally unstable. His heart is triggered by Agnes, a rich Flemish real estate lawyer. He hopes she will offer him love and a secure future, but his dreams turn sour when he realizes she only uses him for a short exotic adventure. He finds refuge in Father Henry’s Church, together with other illegal immigrants. Father Henry, a kind-hearted but helpless priest, unwillingly triggers in Amadou a spiritual enlightenment of doing good. Desperate for work and affection Amadou finds a job as a cleaner in a peepshow venue, and falls in love with Sue, a Korean sex worker whose life is controlled by Dragor, an East European human trafficker. Inspired by the words of Father Henry and on a quest for spiritual survival, he becomes obsessed with saving Sue, as a last attempt to save himself. When Dragor decides to move Sue to yet another country, Amadou raises his own stakes and decides he will buy her out for 15 000 euros. One fatal night, Amadou is confronted again with Raskov and kills him brutally before getting rid of his body.
