Ladji is a bus driver, desperately working to raise himself and his sister, Aminata, who has been forced into prostitution, out of poverty. When he doesn’t get the promotion he was expecting, he decides to contact Driss, a drug dealer who owes him a favour. Ladji risks his life to carry drugs from Conakry to Bamako and quickly becomes the top trafficker in the drug underworld, giving him easy access to money, women and a life that he had never imagined possible. But the price to pay is high. Nominated for the Sutherland Award at the London Film Festival 2016.
