Adama lives a traditional life in a sheltered valley in West Africa. Then his older brother runs away to be a warrior, tempted by the gold of the mysterious Nasseras people. Adama goes in search of him, only to find the strangers are the French, and his quest takes him as far as the Western Front in the middle of World War I. The horrors of modern warfare mingle with magical realism in this one-of-a-kind feature.
