Plot & Details

The concerned brother of a missing man sets out on a cross-continental search for his vanished sibling in director/screenwriter Zeka Laplaine's labyrinthine faux-documentary. Max has disappeared, and the only clues to his whereabouts are collection of videotapes featuring footage that the missing man had previously shot in Kinshasa and Lisbon. Kaze (Leplaine) isn't willing to let his brother go without first getting some solid answers, but his Portuguese father's nostalgic fixation on Congo and his rambling mother's obtuse distain for the European lifestyle offers little to no clue as to Max's current whereabouts. Despite the notable lack of help from his parents, Kaze is now in possession of a symbolic tribal bracelet and a red notebook once owned by his brother. When Kaze arrives in Cambodia to continue the search, all signs seem to suggest that he is hot on Max's trail and fast closing in.
