Madagascar/France • 1987

Tanala is a remote small village in a deep valley in the East of Madagascar. One day, a city dweller arrives with innovative ideas and disrupts the bucolic life of the farmers: they must fight white men in order to obtain independence from them. The villagers’ rebellion takes two different forms: there are those who believe in the power of democracy and those who trust the power of weapons. But the outcome will be the same for both, the insurrection will lead to tragedy for the village.
