Based on Bruce Chatwin's 1980 novel The Viceroy of Ouidah, this adventure drama stars Klaus Kinski as a plantation overseer in 19th-century Brazil who, after falling out of favor with his boss, is sent to West Africa on a dangerous slave-buying mission that soon has him fighting for his life. Werner Herzog directed and wrote the screenplay for this German-language film, the last of several collaborations between Herzog and Kinski.
