The Last Flight of the Flamingo

Death, mystery and seduction in the wild Mozambique.

In the Mozambican village of Tizangara, the UN peacekeepers work to maintain the peace after years of civil war. Five explosions end up with the life of five soldiers, from whom only remain intact their genitalia and blue helmets. Massimo Risi, the Italian lieutenant stationed in Maputo, capital of Mozambique, arrives in town to investigate the incident. With the help of Joaquim, a local translator, Massimo undertakes the investigation into a mystery that makes him understand that, on this land, everything is not what it seems to be.
