1971: Guinea, thirteen years after independence. A revolutionary storm is brewing on the streets of the city of Fria. Somewhere near Conakry - Children play, far from the adults' worries. The gigantic land stretches from the savanna to the marshes. In this mosaic of people in conflict, Jacques leads his warriors though an Africa that has been torn apart, where only children and the elderly have kept a innocent look in their eyes. Beyond the taboos and laws governing the country, Jacques and Madiou, the little African boy, will experience the trial of friendship and parting.
