Under the continual fire of RTMA's cameras - the largest local television in Kolwezi - Congolese society, avid of its own image, discloses itself, unvarnished and shameless. We follow these journalists, motivated by the desire to inform at all costs. They overcome with courage situations sometimes perilous, sometimes funny, often sad and most of the time beyond fiction. Their recent and rapid adaptation to TV raises universal questions of independency from sponsors, of ethics facing sensationalism, and of die-hard investigative drive.
