Eugene is in the transportation business in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and one of very few willing to risk the notorious 650km road from Lubumbashi to Bukama, navigating hundreds of kilometres of DR Congo's dirt tracks filled with potholes and mud pools.

He owns a truck to transport goods and people, often for a high fee. For him, time and space means money. He has to save money for a new truck, because the road is taking a heavy toll on the trucks. They could break down any time in the middle of the bush.
