Nyama and Sibiri are members of Dozos hunters' brotherhood. But with love for Sarah, Sibiri throws his friend in a well and goes to announce that he died during the hunting. Unfortunately, for many months after, Nyama comes back in the village with a religious group, but amnesic. A confrontation takes place with Sibiri, for believing that he is died, goes mad. Nyama recovers the memory. But his engagement in this sect does not enable him to get submitted to traditional rite supposed to purify him.
