A peddler crossing the savanna discovers a child lying unconscious in the bush. When the boy comes to, he is mute and cannot explain who he is. Wend Kuuni regains his speech only after witnessing a tragic event that prompts him to reveal his own painful history.

MUBI's take

A classic of Burkinabe cinema, this César-winning fable explores pre-colonial solidarity to reflect on the present. Drawing influence from the oral traditions of African folktales, Gaston Kaboré’s enchanting debut transmutes their graceful rhythms and storytelling into a unique film experience.
