Dir. Dan Moss. Prods. David Cecil, Semulema Daniel Katenda. Uganda. 2019, 93 mins. Digital projection. Hugo Winter, a roguish American drug smuggler, is on a quest for a mysterious African drug called Bulu which gives the user the powers of prophecy.

As Hugo follows them deeper into the jungle, he begins to doubt whether his prophetic visions are leading him to death or glory.
