She seems to be the mistress of the village who also specializes in indigenous bomb making. He also tastes violence and blood. He is funny and he can set the dance floor on fire. What happens when he goes abroad and becomes a nightmare for gun-wielding, tux-wearing, smooth-talking gangsters? We’ll just have to wait and see.
