Scottish doctor Nicholas Garrigan decides to move to Uganda on an impulse and finds himself working in a small clinic. There he comes in contact with the charismatic General Idi Amin who has just taken over the country's government. Impressed with Amin's rhetoric, Garrigan is delighted when Amin offers him as a job as his personal doctor. He embraces Amin's lavish lifestyle and becomes close with his family, particularly Amin's youngest wife Kay. However, as Garrigan becomes closer to Amin, he begins to see a darker side that frightens him and it soon becomes apparent that he is in over his head.
