Love. At any cost.


Justin Quayle is an English gentle diplomat who is sent to the embassy of Kenya, he takes his wife Tessa who is an impulsive youth that he met in a conference. Tessa is a tenacious activist that fights for the rights of the poor people and she helps attending to Doctor Arnold Bluhm. Tessa finds out accidentally that a powerful pharmacist firm (3 Bees) tries to prove a medication among the Africans, that supposedly will carry colateral damages that will produce monetary big benefits for the company. Tessa is more involved in the matter and she decides to request help to Sandy, a Justin's friend, because she don't want to involve to her husband. Tessa is murdered in a trip to the north of Kenya and the authority try to accuse Arnold for a pasional crime. Justin that is a fan of the gardening, decides to clarify the crime until the last consequences, this take him to uncover dirty arrangements of the powerful, who threaten him and they drive him to make the decision of taking off his life in the same place where they killed his dear wife. In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle, will leave the matter to them. They could not be more wrong. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, he will risk his own life, stopping at nothing to uncover and expose the truth - a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined. Written by focus features After his wife is murdered in Kenya, Justin Quayle, a mild, low-level diplomat and a constant gardener, must investigate his wife's death, their relationship, and his own heart. In flashbacks, we see them meet, marry, and fall in love; we follow her in the teeming streets and clinics of Nairobi, usually accompanying Arnold Bluhm, a Black doctor with whom she spent the night before her murder, and who, after robbers, is the prime suspect. In his own investigation, Justin must not quail as he faces his memories, his colleagues, local police, hired thugs, and a nasty corporate CEO. Help and connections, as well as conspiracies, come from unexpected places. Murder will out.
