Empire of Dust

.

Two men representing two different cultures meet in the dust of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Lao Yang, head of logistics for the Chinese Railway Engineering Company, and Eddy, a Congolese man speaking fluent Mandarin, have just joined an isolated camp with the goal to re-lay a 300km strip of road.
However, deliveries of equipment or food haven’t arrived and the road works will cease without the construction materials. As Lao Yan learns about the Congolese way of making deals, both men are forced on a harsh but also absurdly funny journey of misunderstandings.
