Loa Yan and Eddy work for CREG (the Chinese Railway Engineering Company) in the remote mining town of Kolwezi in the Katanga province of the Congo resurfacing a 300 km road. Loa Yan is head of logistics, responsible for the equipment, building materials and food (mainly chickens) to arrive in the isolated Chinese prefab camp. The Congolese government was supposed to deliver these things but so far the team hasn't received anything. With Eddy (a Congolese man who speaks fluent Mandarin) as an intermediary, Loa Yan is forced to leave the camp and deal with local Congolese entrepreneurs. What ensues is an endless but absurdly funny roller coaster of negotiations and misunderstandings.
Loa Yan et Eddy travaillent tous les deux pour la société CREG (Chinese Railway Engineering Company). Ils viennent d’établir leur campement à proximité de la ville minière de Kolwezi, dans la province de Katanga, en République démocratique du Congo. Le but de la société est de reconstruire une route longue de 300 km qui relie Kolwezi à Lubumbashi, la capitale de la province.
