Black, a Frenchman with African roots, commits in France a heist with some complices. The early arrival of alarmed police kindles a shooting. Black's complices are killed and he can only scarcely escape by jumping from a bridge onto a running train. When he is all alone in his hideout, he receives a long distance call from a cousin in Africa. Black is asked to rob diamonds from a bank. His cousin makes him believe this was easily done.

Black travels consequently to Africa. Once there, he has to realise that the responsible Africans he intends to rob are more sophisticated than he had thought. Moreover a group of Russian soldiers of fortune also wants to steal the diamonds. Black outsmarts them and retrieves the diamonds during their holdup. Unfortunately his cousin tries to betray him. That is his cousin's downfall.

Now all on his own, Black is caught by a feisty female police agent. Soon both are hunted by vengeful former Russian commandos. While trying to elude, they get entangled in a local mystic prophecy and their struggle is lifted to a higher, supernatural level.
