Drissa Toure's drama juxtaposes the conditions of life in a city in West Africa with those of the slums surrounding it. Fousseini (Fatogoma Konate) tries to keep his family intact and is pressured by his old values along with the changing moral landscape around him. As his older son works to support the whole clan (much to the chagrin of his modern wife), the younger son meets bad influences and head down the wrong path.
