The story takes you back to the tragic Biafran War in Nigeria in the turbulent year of 1968 when Chris was born and where his family fled from after being cursed by a witchdoctor. Chris leads an idyllic boyhood in his London Years, but his life is destroyed when his father makes the mistake of moving the family back to Africa in the eighties. In this second part of the book: Return to Africa, Chris struggles to survive starvation, diseases, corruption and inhumane brutality in Nigeria before he fulfills his dream of coming to America. Chriss life then takes off as he chases his American Dreams of becoming a doctor and embarks on a bizarre series of adventures including, losing a close friend to AIDS, meeting a generous millionaire, posing nude, and even ruining Dr. Lauras day, all at the same time as holding down three jobs and searching love.
