Synopsis: From an illustrious scientific career in the lecture halls of Europe, Professor George Mensa (Isaach De Bankole) suddenly finds himself back in the jungles of Africa when an old friend unexpectedly passes away. Inheriting a field station in the mosquito infested jungle, George soon learns that challenges come in all sizes when a local orphan boy, Jimmy shows up at his doorstep. George acquaints Jimmy with the joys of chocolate and Jimmy in turn plays matchmaker between George and Corina (Juliet Landau) head of the local orphanage. But all is jeopardized with the sudden arrival of Martin (Stelio Savante) as they discover that life often leads you astray, where the road runs out.
