Amir, a teenage orphan boy, runs into a young girl while trying to escape a mob. She is a prostitute with an agenda and he has a bomb vest under his dress. They are both running out of time and they soon realise they need each other to achieve their goals.
Before the night ends, they will have to contend with each other, Amir’s group, the knowledge of the terrible secrets that made them who they are, and the consequences of living in a society that doesn’t care.
Their journey takes them through the underbelly of the city exposing the hidden back side of the African Society and its dangerous culture of silence in the presence of evil.
