The African Doctor is the true story of Seyolo Zantoko. As a new doctor of Congolese descent in France, Seyolo wanted to avoid the corruption of his country and turned down an offer to be the personal doctor to Zaire’s president, Joseph-Desire Mobutu. Instead, Seyolo moves his family to a small, rural French village. They struggle to adapt – the locals consider him a sorcerer and will not visit him, his children are bullied and his wife is outcast. Despite these challenges, the family perseveres and, in time, they all win the trust and support of their new village.
