In this adaptation of Joseph Conrad's classic novella, Marlow (Tim Roth) takes a job with a Belgian shipping company to captain a boat along the Congo River in Africa. He has been dispatched to locate Kurtz (John Malkovich), a former German general who had previously been one of the company's best suppliers.
