Synopsis >

Teddy (James Purefoy) heads back to Kujama, Nigeria, the scene of his philanthropic epiphany. He has opened an oil refinery that will help bring commerce to the small village. However, Teddy'?s business and philanthropic plans are thrown aside when his respected friend, Doctor Chima Balo, is kidnapped by a local rebel leader, Jonathan Bankole, who disapproves of Teddy'?s interference in the village. Teddy vows to get Chima back safely but Bankole will only release her if the government pays a huge ransom, forcing Teddy to begin negotiations with a self-righteous General. Meanwhile, in New York, Philip (Jesse L. Martin) is reflecting on Teddy'?s newfound charitable character and is keen to indulge in serving others too, by helping an unemployed acquaintance stay afloat while also motivating the man's son to take his schoolwork more seriously. Neve Campbell also stars.
