Before the night ends, they will have to contend with each other, Amir’s group, the knowledge of the terrible secrets that made them who they are, and the consequences of living in a society that doesn’t care. Their journey takes them through the underbelly of the city, exposing the hidden backside of the African society and its dangerous culture of silence in the presence of evil.
