A cayman is lost in the bush, and asks a child for help; in exchange, he promises not to eat him. The child helped him get back in the water. What about is promise ?
This story, from African oral tradition, was written down by Moustapha Dao; it is a mixture of dream and Fiction. Some of the animals in the film are real (such as the cayman, the horse and the cow), but others (like the hares) are played by children wearing masks.
