When an armored car holdup goes horribly awry, Black, a bank robber from the wrong side of town, considers getting out of the game. While laying low, Black receives news from his cousin about a stash of uncut diamonds in a poorly guarded bank, and his plan to live on the straight and narrow grinds to a halt. With an opportunity that is too good to refuse, he puts together a crew and embarks on one last job before getting out for good.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The kind of movie you have to respect for doing what it sets out to do."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"An appealingly rough-and-ready contemporary variation on Shaft in Africa."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"An uncategorisable exploration of the contradictions to be found in Franco-African identity... where a whole history of crime, poverty and colonial exploitation are portrayed through mythology as a clash of the totems."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
