Synopsis

In a Spanish port, Shad sells crack cocaine and Otho gets by driving a cab without a licence. They both dream of one day returning to their Ivory Coast homeland as triumphant benefactors and heroes. But a police raid separates their fates. Otho, deported, returns empty handed. Shad is on the run from the authorities. In England, he comes across Tango, a “white little sister”, with whom he pursues his conquest of Europe. After wonders and misadventures, he returns to Abidjan apparently successful. But on the day of the big wedding, a duel with Otho breaks out, threatening to destroy their friendship and camaraderie forever.
