Burkina Faso, West Africa. Poverty and misery breaks out with a vengeance in Gourga, a village within the borders of the Sahel. For the people of the country, a choice has to be made: either await international assistance or travel further inland to the richer preas of the country. Salam, a peasant, and his family opt for the second solution, with all the sacrifices that this entails. A new life can now begin for them. They discover love, joy, hate, violence, feelings which hunger and thirst had made them forget. 1986 Director: Idrissa Ouédraogo Screenplay: Idrissa Ouédraogo Running time: 78' 16 mm - Feature Film - Colour Directors of Photography: Jean Monsigny, Sékou Ouédraogo, Issaka Thiombiano Editing: Arnaud Blin Sound: Issa Traoré Music: Francis Bebey Producer: Les Films de l'Avenir with the participation of the Burkina Faso Cast: Aoua Guiraud, Bologo Moussa, Assita Ouedraogo, Fatimata Ouedraogo, Rasmine Ouedraogo
