Synopsis

After serving in the French expeditionary corps in Indochina, an African rifleman is demobilized and returns home to Niger, wealthy and acclaimed by his friends. But he is too generous with his fortune, and soon finds himself deserted. A cult film with American film-makers and film studies lecturers, this is Oumarou Ganda's answer to Jean Rouch's film Moi, un noir (I, a Negro) in which he played himself in the role of a Senegalese rifleman who took part in the Indochinese war.
