Justin Quayle is a British diplomat who has an interest in gardening and carries a self-effacing kindness. Justin seems like the unlikely hero when he takes his tenacious activist wife, Tessa, to Africa with him where he has diplomatic duty. While there, Tessa becomes interested in and fights for the rights of the poor people. She accidentally finds out that a powerful pharmacist firm (3 Bees) is trialing a new drug amongst the Africans and begins to ask too many questions. One day Tessa is found brutally murdered at a crossroads in a trip up to north Kenya. Fingers are quickly pointed at different people, but Justin is determined to do more than just guess. He surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents to find the truth of his wife’s murder, no matter the consequences. This movie is rated R for language, some violence, sexual content/nudity.
