Storyline



©
The film visits the capital city of Kinshasa,exposing disparities in its social fabric. This film reveals bourgeois traders, the religious and military figures; but also captured on film are beggars, transients, social outcasts and Congolese grieving for their dead, martyrs to an iron-gloved dictator.
