Ladji works as a minibus driver in Malis capital Bamako. When an opportunity for advancement fails, he decides to enter the profitable drug business. His first courier tours to the coast work out well and with the money he can secure himself and his sister Ami. Soon Ladji receives bigger, but also more dangerous orders. The big players in the international drug business are militaries, politicians and businessmen, who are not even hesitating to collaborate with Al-Qaida.
