Prior to the start of the film, Costa and his mobsters attempted to steal the Colossus of Nairobi statue located in Paris, but fail. In the attempt, Costa manages to kill one of the police officers, causing the daughter of the officer, Zoé, to lose her voice and isolate herself from her mother, Jeanne, who in return has reoccurring nightmares of Costa returning to harm her or Zoé.

Years later, the statue is prepared to be moved back to its original location in Africa, where Jeanne, who is commissioned to handle the security of the statue, believes Costa will attempt to get his hands on it once again.
