Synopsis

Cisco works as a rubber tree tapper under miserably working conditions on a rubber plantation in Liberia. Making bold on an opportunity to move to America, he heads for New York to join his cousin and finds work as a taxi driver; he plans to send the money he earns home to his wife and two children. In the tiny community of ex-pat Liberians he is reunited with Jacob, an old acquaintance he had long since erased from his memory, but who now brings back recollections of the time when they were both child soldiers...
