Storyline

Mark Unwin is one of four employees of Krielsen International oil company captured by militant group MEND whilst they are working in Nigeria. His wife Claire flies out with Alice Onuko, Nigerian-born, British-raised P.R. for Krielsen. When the women arrive in Port Harcourt they are told a ransom has been agreed - as is the norm since MEND depends on ransoms to fund itself. However when civil rights worker Keme, acting as go-between, escorts the women to the handover place they find only the corpses of Mark and his co-workers. Next day Claire meets a journalist who tells her the men were killed by the Nigerian government after their release by MEND and he is himself later found dead. She also learns that he was having an affair with Angel, a prostitute, whom she confronts but who is whisked away in a car before she can say anything. Alice is equally shocked to find that her father has made his money less than scrupulously from oil. Keme is jailed but Alice levers Tunde, the police ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Great Action
28 July 2013 | by topmom100See all my reviews

Really have enjoyed this two part series. Enough time given to develop the characters, actors are believable. I am not familiar with Nigeria, but the story line kept me hooked. I realize that the story line follows what is happening in that part of the world and it is frightening. I wish BBC would male a CD available for purchase in the United States. I would recommend this, specially if you like movies that take place in Africa, don't mind violence, because there is a great deal of violence in the series, although the violence is part of the story. Actors include David Oyelowo, of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Naoomi Harris, Jodhi May and Paterson Joseph, also from The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. The story line follows the kidnapping and what follows.
