Synopsis:

In the jungle of Kivu in Congo, Sargent Xavier, a Rwandan war hero, and the young and inexperienced soldier Faustin are in enemy territory where they fight in an unclear war. When the two men lose their battalion, they end up alone and without the resources to face the inextricable Congolese jungle known to be the vastest, densest and most hostile on the continent. Squeezed by the fighting raging around them and where one no longer distinguishes enemies from allies, they do not any choice but to enter into the green hell.Looking for water, food and always looking for a way out, they are exposed to an omnipresent hostility. Alone, they must also confront their own demons.

This film is about war with an antimilitarist discourse, the mercy of the jungle that exposes the gaping wounds left by the confrontations and questions the place of humanity in conflicts.
