  • Overview
    In the deep Nigerian rainforest the trees are dying. As humans drill for oil the water and the environment is slowly poisoned. When Andrew Walker returns to his father’s business in the Niger Delta, working for a multinational oil company, he finds that everything is not as it seems. Confronted by the starving people he realises that he cannot sit by and watch them suffer.

    But out of the darkness something is coming. The garden of Eden, once paradise, has become Edem, the lost world and a mysterious woman steps out of the rainforest to prophesies Andrew’s future. What can one young man do, torn between the ravaging material world and the powerful spirits of his past?
