a story about desire, choice and the freedom (or lack of it) of young people forced into a traditional practice where a male tags a girl at birth for marriage in adulthood. Mathias returns triumphant to Mansaré, his native city, after having amassed a fortune abroad over a few years. He wishes to become a businessman and marry Nathalie, promised to him at birth. However, Nathalie is in love with Lamine, a Muslim and childhood friend of Mathias' - himself a Christian - and rejects him. Between the two men, and - in parallel - between the two religious communities, the tension mounts. When Nathalie runs away on her wedding day, out of pride rather than out of love, Mathias resolves to find her, no matter the cost and consequences.
