Franz Rogowski (A HIDDEN LIFE, TRANSIT) delivers a captivating lead performance as Alex, a Belarusian man sneaking his way through Europe to arrive undocumented in France, looking to take advantage of the French Foreign Legion's offer to provide French citizenship to anyone who completes three years of service. More than 5,000 kilometers away in Nigeria, Jomo (Morr N'Diaye, in a striking debut) leads a band of resistance fighters against the French oil companies mining for petroleum in the Niger Delta. Irrevocably and unforgettably, Alex and Jomo's paths will collide in director Giacomo Abbruzzese's bold debut feature, a compelling look at the intersection of capitalism and personal guilt.
