ABSTRACT
Adapted from a John Le Carré novel of the same name, The Constant Gardener centers on Justin Quayle, a British diplomat operating out of Kenya who finds his life thrown for a tailspin when idealistic wife Tessa disappears during a spell of anti-poverty activism in the blighted African nation and is found brutally murdered. Determined to solve his beloved's death, Justin takes matters into his own hands, setting out on a fact-finding mission blossoming into an investigation of a conspiracy that could prove devastating not only for his career, but for various economic and political interests in his native Great Britain, as well.
