Synopsis

The president of Congo-Brazzaville plans to transfer the remains of 19th century pacifist explorer Pietro Savorgnan di Brazza, founder of Brazzaville, from his grave in Algiers to a multimillion dollar marble mausoleum in Congo's impoverished capital. But Brazza's Italian descent discovers the truth behind this extravagant project. Violence, corruption and skull-duggery lie at the heart of this affair as Idanna Pucci battles to defend the ideals of her ancestor and save King Makoko, the great African spiritual leader and a living descendant of Makoko Iloo I, Brazza's 'blood brother'.
