Ignoring all warnings, Prof Eugene goes ahead with his research project in search of a plant, Bryophyte, believed to be found in a humid virgin forest in the tropics. This, he claims, could hold the answer to a pharmaceutical quest for a new healing balm. Dispatching five of his top botany students to the forest of Agbabiaka, he basks in the euphoria of their anticipated success.
Out in the forest, love is kindled, villages are unsettled, mysteries are unveiled, death is triggered, war looms and back at the university Prof Eugene loses his sanity.
