Storyline

Jonathan Anselme, a young English academic, teams up with Max Böhm, an amateur ornithologist, to follow storks on their migration from Switzerland to Africa. Max wants to find out why some birds never return from this journey. However, after Max is found dead in mysterious circumstances, Jonathan decides to make the trip alone, never suspecting that he will find himself caught up in an international web of intrigue. While the Swiss detective Dumaz investigates Max Böhm's murky past, Jonathan is forced to confront his own troubled history. He uncovers a trail of grisly murders travelling through Bulgaria, Turkey, the Middle East, the Congo along the pathway of the migrating storks and their deadly secret.

Excellent thriller with a lot of human touch, not an average blah
13 July 2016 | by zhaponSee all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised to find this movie in an age of mindless action/fiction chow. Reminded me a little bid of "Blood Diamond" although these two are quite different. Passion for core human values makes it so appealing to those who like to think and relate while watching. Surrealistic retreats make this movie even more enthralling. Can't think of anything else to say about this movies without giving spoilers. you will not be disappointed. These days many of us are struggling to find a meaningful material. This is it, rare jewel.

Rating does not reflect its goodness.
