Peter Bechtle, a German timber expert, is the new manager of a lumber mill in Ghana. He finds a run-down mill, dangerous for the workers and unprofitable for its owners, industrialist Brasser and the exotic Victoria. But after a while Bechtle begins to understand what's going on and why his predecessor was killed. Precious mahagoni is declared as cheap timber and smuggled to Europe at enormous profit. Bechtle has to stop this and enters into a fight against an obscure web of smugglers, corruption and violence. A gripping eco thriller about the exploitation of the Third World.
