Mirroring the political strife and genocide in contemporary Sub-Saharan Africa, this film opens as preparations are being made to end a decade of civil war in a fictitiuous country. A peace agreement is about to be signed and celebrated in a night of reconciliation with a ?laying down of arms?. As the powerful drumming begins, both rebels and government forces gather, bringing with them years of rage, grief, hope, suspicion, and bitterness. In this first feature film, Fanta R?gina Nacro boldly presents the sometimes unintentional but inhuman behavior inherent in all people.
