Eugène Gabana, a young, bigmouthed hunchbacked Burkinabe "businessman", lives off small-time scams that bring in just enough to put food on the table and fuel in his brother's motorbike for rides with friends. Camille Plagnet and Jeanne Delafosse return to Burkina Faso to film a fictional history of adolescence that takes the form of the daily struggle for survival in a heavily indebted poor country.
A film by Jeanne Delafosse and Camille Plagnet
