In Ouagadougou, Yves-Omar, a former schoolteacher is now an accomplished entrepreneur. Although he enjoys living with his family, his business pushes him to travel more and more to develop his company and create new partnerships in Paris, Munich, Brussels, Lomé.

The experience of a man who-like Ulysses-returns home after long voyages. Each time experiencing the pleasure of returning to his country, Burkina Faso.
