When the new Chinese managers of the establishment decide to downsize, Adam loses his job to his own son, Abdel . Shattered by this demeaning turn of events, Adam is pressured into contributing to the Chadian war effort. With no money to speak of, the only asset he can donate is his son, who is then abducted into the Chadian army.
