JOE YUMBA a musician from the Democratic Republic of Congo, receives the news he has been waiting for - His application for asylum has been successful. He has leave to stay in the country.

When his wife and child join him, Joe has good reason to feel happy. His happiness is short lived. On his way home from his job as a Security Guard in the bank where he now works he is manhandled into the back of a van. Inside, a group of gangland heavies, working for Eddie Gilroy - Dublin's most notorious crime boss - make him an offer he can't refuse.

They want access to the bank where Joe works. To ensure Joe's assistance, his wife and son have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until after the job. Tonight.

Summoning every morsel he can muster of cunning and courage Joe turns the tables on Gilroy and his gang and plays them off against each other and the police while desperately fighting to keep himself and his family alive. But Joe isn't who he said he was...

As the police look closer into Joe's background they discover that Joe Yumba is not who he claimed he was.

Everything we thought we knew turns out to be false as the truth of Joe's identity and the role he played in the horrific killing fields of the Congo start to come to light.
