Shad and Otho, two friends from the Ivory Coast, embark on a European adventure. They dream of returning home as benefactors or heroes. Otho is deported and returns to his country empty-handed. He becomes an outcast. Shad pursues his dream with Tango, a slightly strange white woman he meets in a supermarket. Their brotherly friendship gives them both wings. Otho tries to resist his fall, while Shad fights to keep going. A final dual brings the two friends together again: there's neither a winner nor a loser.
