Ready to do anything to escape Belarus, Aleksei heads for Paris and joins the Foreign Legion. He is sent to fight in the Niger Delta, where Jomo, a young revolutionary, is fighting against the oil companies that have devastated his village. While Aleksei looks for a new family in the Legion, Jomo imagines himself as a dancer, a disco boy. In the jungle, their dreams and destinies cross paths.
