(Feature, 90', Malagasy, France, Mauritius, South Africa)
Madagascar, today. Kwame, 20 years old, tries to make a living in the clandestine sapphire mines. Following an unexpected event, he must return to his hometown where he finds his mother, old friends, but also the corruption that plagues his country. Tossed about by contrary feelings, he will have to choose between easy money and brotherhood, individualism and awakening to a political conscience.
