Modern Dakar is the setting for this comic yet heartbreaking story about Ibrahim Dieng, a faithful Moslem who lives there with his two wives and seven children. This simple man, although he has been out of work for four years, lives with dignity, until one day he receives a money order from his nephew living in Paris. This dubious windfall threatens to destroy the traditional fabric of his life.
