A synopsis of the show reads:
Three years after the death of the love of her life Will Mason in a plane crash in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Georgia Wells is shocked to her core when she spots Will in the background of a TV news report about the Congo.
Filled with determination that Will is still alive, Georgia returns to the country’s capital, Kinshasa, for the first time since the plane crash. There, she reunites with Judith Gray, Will’s enigmatic erstwhile business partner, and Emmanuel Kazadi, a local Congolese journalist she met three years previously after his wife was also a victim of the crash
Meanwhile, in Rotterdam, Holland, a blind Icelandic man, Ariel Helgason applies for a medical trial in the hope that his sight can be restored. There he meets Beatrix, another candidate for the trial. But Ariel’s keeping a secret. One that links him to Georgia’s husband. To Will. It’s only a matter of time before he gets pulled back into that world.
Oblivious to the extent of the danger she faces, Georgia sets out across the country in pursuit of Will, while Martin Benson, the closest person to family Georgia has, searches for answers elsewhere.
It’s a journey that will lead her to the volatile region of eastern DRC, where we’ll meet an array of characters like the child soldier, Adidja, the unhinged General Azikiwe and a mysterious white man by the name of Pieter Bello.
It’s said that people go to the ends of the earth for the ones they love. Georgia is going to do just that.
