A strange, enigmatic and decadent white European with diplomatic credentials arrives in the Central African Republic to head a diplomatic mission representing Liberia. Officially he is there as a do-good business man to start a factory that produces matches – this, to employ locals and teach how to make this simple piece of fire-making equipment. Unofficially he is there to gain access to vast reserves of diamonds.

The Ambassador is a genre-breaking, tragic comedy about the bizarre and hidden world of African diplomacy, where gin-tonics flow on a daily basis and diamond hustlers and corrupt politicians run free.
