Moussa is a young 27-year-old graduate looking for work. He is preparing for his job interview in a local company. As usual, he has to make a sacrifice before the interview to have the chance to be hired. He buys food for charity. This day coincides with the ban on begging in Senegal. He went around the town to find a beggar and found a disabled person, Yoro, a 40-year-old man, to whom he gave alms without hesitation. Later that day, he realises that Yoro, the disabled person, is the boss of the company that has to interview him.
