Movie Info

Joe Yumba has traveled far--from the dark heart of the Congo to the cold streets of Dublin. Behind him is a life of civil war and terror, but in a prosperous new world Yumba sees his future. His application for asylum has been successful, and he now can carve out a new life in a new Ireland for himself and his "family"--Kala and nine-year-old Daniel. But, on his way home from his job as a bank security guard, he is manhandled into the back of a van. Inside, psychotic Eddie Gilroy, leader of a ruthless criminal gang, offers him a deadly ultimatum--help access the bank vault or lose his loved ones. To ensure Joe's assistance, his wife and son have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until after the job. Summoning all the cunning and courage he can muster, Joe turns the tables on Gilroy and his gang. But Joe isn't who he said he was. The Immigration Bureau, led by Detective Inspector Harbison have long been suspicious of Joe Yumba. As the police look closer into Joe's background they discover that Joe Yumba is not his real name and the woman and the boy are not his wife and son. The full horror of Joe's true identity and the role he played in the horrific killing fields of the Congo comes to light.
