For women, there has been a risk of participating in public life, a gender-specific tax that we must endure. In this short thriller, a confident young African-American woman on her way to conduct a research project in Africa finds herself alone in Africa, not sure whom she can to trust. On her first day, a curious group of men engage her, but their behavior rapidly morphs into harassment. Are they dangerous? She escapes into the jeep of a seemingly upstanding white man who proceeds to take her on an unexpected journey.
