Amadou, a strong and charismatic man, washes up on a beach in southern Europe. Full of illusions, he arrives in Brussels, seeking a better life. Exploited by traffickers, he gets bogged down in his hopeless daily existence until he meets Agnès, a beautiful and brilliant businesswoman. With his mysterious allure and persistence, he manages to seduce her, and projects all of his desires and hopes onto her. Agnès quickly grows weary of his burden, and severs all ties with him. Amadou slowly sinks into destructive violence as he struggles with his own demons. A complex and uncompromising vision from Belgian helmer Nicolas Provost.
