American Matt Reiser travels to The Ivory Coast on a mission to locate his estranged son. His only guide is a three-year old postal address. Fighting cultural vertigo and disorientation at the Abidjan airport, he relies on a glib and persistent limo driver who speaks just enough English to gain Matt's trust.
The next morning, Matt wakes up drugged, robbed, and dropped into a grim city slum.
