Overview


Synopsis

An African-American couple, Sarah and David Bradley, travel to Mozambique to visit David's ancestral home. They arrive at the Imperial Hotel, where black servants are still ordered about by white overseers. Eventually, one of the bellhops there, Joaquim, takes them and the other people at the hotel hostage because of the anger he feels over the discrepancy between the wealth he sees in front of him and the poverty of his village. The people who are taken hostage are then stuck in a room together, where they argue about life and their situation.
