Billy and his wife are stranded at a port in the Mediterranean as they wait for repairs to be completed on the ship which will take them to Africa to investigate reports of Uranium deposits. Travelling with an assortment of passengers that includes Billy’s dodgy business associates and a seemingly-proper English couple, suspicions rise amongst the group as a series of unusual events strikes their increasingly ill-fated journey and the various parties look to claim the Uranium for themselves.
