Zimbabwe’s dictator exploits critical faults in the decaying infrastructure of his own country. Evil reigns unchecked and greed has no limit.

When political extortion forces white African, Stuart Hall, from his land, he embraces a patriotism that knows no color. What will he do when forced to choose between his family and his country?
