Here is the description of the story
Sylvie is on the run from the men of the Congolese dictator who killed her father and raped her mother. The only way she can survive in Pointe Noire is by selling herself under a false name to oil company men she attracts in nightclubs, discothèques and bars. She knows that if she can leave the country she has the education and good looks to make a success of herself and earn enough money to get her mother and sisters out of the Congo before they are discovered by the Cobras. However the Dictator’s men control all the borders They will do everything possible to stop and kill her before she can leave the country.
One night she is picked up by a wealthy Frenchman who offers her a job in France and who takes care of all of the paperwork. The first few months of her new life as a highly-paid, sophisticated escort working mainly for the French arms industry and its clients are too good to be true. When she meets a politician who used to know her father she thinks he will help her, but he puts her in a situation as bad as how she was treated by the Cobras.
