In the spring of 2009, the two Norwegians Joshua French and Tjostolv Moland cross the border to Eastern Congo. A few days later, the news is out that their hired driver has been found murdered. Following several nights on the run in the mighty Congolese jungle, the two of them are apprehended, and sentenced to death.

After four long years in prison, Tjostolv Moland is found dead in his cell, and Joshua French is suspected of having killed his best friend. In our meeting with the dispirited Joshua French, the film takes us on a journey back to a mystery which has been the subject of all kinds of speculations. Dubbed “The Congo Case,” the fateful events in the Congolese jungle develop into a politically and diplomatically sensitive symbolic issue, which for a long time appears to be unsolvable.
