RIALTO CHANNEL – Friday 25 January, 8.30pm
Drama: With petrol in short supply in Kinshasa, DRC, Riva and his sidekick J.M. plan to get hold of a secret cache which they can sell for a huge profit. They’re not the only ones who want the liquid cash. Cesar is a ruthless foreigner from Angola thriving in Kinshasa’s lawless streets. A lesbian military officer joins the fray. Even the church will betray its tenets for a piece of the action. But Riva’s main nemesis is Azor, a crime boss in the classic style: big, decadent and brutal. He’s not a man to mess with, but his girlfriend Nora may just be the most seductive woman in all of DRC. Riva catches sight of her dancing at a nightclub and it’s not long before Nora matches the fuel cache as his most coveted target.
