Young Belarusian Aleksei (Franz Rogowski) has his sights set on the nightclubs of Paris.

After a painful journey through Europe, he enlists in the Foreign Legion, in pursuit of a French passport. Fate, however, takes an unexpected turn, propelling Aleksei into the heart of the Niger Delta.

Meanwhile, charismatic revolutionary Jomo, whose community is being threatened, dreams of being a disco dancer. In the jungle, their paths converge, intertwining their destinies across borders, bodies, life and death.

Featuring an original score from electronic musician Vitalic.
