“You get a cook, a cleaner, a driver and you get paid. I’ll be watching out for you.”

A seasoned humanitarian worker and her idealistic young colleague embark on a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo. For Mathilde it’s an induction into a life less ordinary. For Sadhbh (pronounced “Sive”) it’s back to madness and chaos away from her lover and London – exactly as she likes it.

But while Mathilde lets off steam with a photographer and a spliff, Sadhbh has her own encounter: tea with a smart, brutal young warlord she’s investigating. Or is he investigating her?
