What It’s About: Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) is a diplomat stationed in Kenya. His wife (Rachel Weisz) is raped and murdered by “bandits”, but Quayle knows there’s something wrong with the whole affair, that she was killed for digging too deep into *something*. Soon Quayle is up against a shady pharmaceutical company and his own colleagues.
