Kunta Mozazishala was but a boy when he was first exposed to violence, the Nigerian government did not provide the security the people needed and violence was running rampant in the country, one night so called rebels came to his village, resulting in the death of his father and the violation of his mother. She never was the same after that. Kunta had to grow up fast if he was going to survive and be able to protect his siblings.
Unfortunately he could not protect them all, only one of his brothers survived together with Kunta, they both made it to an United Nations camp where they were taken care of to some extent. One day in the rush for the food truck in the camp, Kunta lost his 8 year old brother, never to see him again... Or so he thought, until one day many years later when Kunta was coming home from his job as a steelworker received a phone call, it was an adoption agency who wanted to ask him some questions about his past. It would turn out his long lost brother was in fact rescued from the camp and adopted to a couple in the Netherlands.
Now years later, Kunta and his brother having met for the first time, decided to take a trip together to experience the world and make up for lost time. Thanks to his brothers adoptive parents living a rich life in the Netherlands they have the opportunity to travel the world freely. But was it really a blessing they had received? What they didn't know while they were on their travels, somewhere close by, the end of the world was about to begin.
Now Kunta would have to use all his experience from a harsh life to not only survive himself, but once more keep his brother alive long enough to find safety.
