Empire of Dust

Lao Yang and Eddy both work for CREC, the Chinese Railway Engineering Company in Congo, Africa. The goal of the company is to redo the road – covering 300km – that connects Kolwezi with the capital of the province Lubumbashi.
Lao Yang is head of logistics of the group. He is responsible for the equipment, building materials and food (mainly chickens) to arrive in the isolated Chinese prefab camp.
With Eddy (a Congolese man who speaks Mandarin fluently) as an intermediate, Lao Yang is forced to leave the camp and deal with local Congolese entrepreneurs, because without the construction materials the road works will cease.
What follows is an endless, harsh, but absurdly funny roller coaster of negotiations and misunderstandings, as Lao Yang learns about the Congolese way of making deals.
