Despite traces of sleeping tablets in his system, several clues that only a mother knows lead her to believe something more sinister took place.?However Louise soon realizes that Henrik had kept many things from her and is shocked to learn he had contracted HIV.

The only lead is a letter and photograph from Henriks girlfriend in Mozambique.?Louises quest to unravel the mystery surrounding her sons death takes her to Africa, a continent rife with disease, poverty and corruption. Struggling to cope with the oppressive heat and sickness, Louise sees fear in every face, even unexpectedly in the clinics set up by an American businessman.
