Where The Road Runs Out - completed

George Mensah (Isaach de Bankolé, Casino Royale) is stuck in a rut. A respected scientist and lecturer living in Rotterdam, he has grown weary of the world of academia.
But the sudden death of an old friend, who has been running a field research station in Equatorial Guinea, gives George the incentive he needs to turn his back on the academic world and return to his African roots.

Arriving in Equatorial Guinea, where he finds the field station in a state of disrepair, George meets a local boy, Jimi, whose sunny disposition opens George’s jaded eyes to the possibilities of life in this rich and colourful place. Through Jimi, George is introduced to Corina (Juliet Landau, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), who runs the orphanage which the little boy calls home, and a tentative but heartfelt romance begins.

With the unexpected arrival of George’s old friend Martin (Stelio Savante, Ugly Betty), however, George discovers that there are many obstacles on the road to redemption and many more where the road runs out...
