The film portrays the hectic life of the "Great Z", an engine driver of the "Abidjan-Ouagadougou" line for twenty years, laid off in 1995 by the National Railways of Burkina Faso following the privatization imposed by the World Bank. An inveterate hedonist to the bone, he suddenly found himself struck down as he was experiencing pure joyfulness. He lost everything, and has since then lived a gloomy life waiting for his retirement pension.
