Synopsis

Dane, a driver from N’Djamena is living a good life,his wife Delphine is expecting and he has a stable job. Everything seems alright until the day he crashes into Younous, a 9 year old boy, in a car accident. He takes him to the hospital where he meets the boy’s family. Devastated, he doesn’t notice the boy’s father following him to see where he is living, instead of remaining at his son’s side.
The following day, Dane visits the boy at the hospital where he is told that he has been transferred, he later discovers that the has boy died. Younous’ family is asking for a lot of money, representing the DIA, the traditional “price of blood”, and if Dane refuses to pay them, a member of his family will be killed. Dane wants to pay tribute to the boy but he isn’t allowed to see the body. Dane’s life starts to spiral down, leading him to jail, and during the lawsuit, two irreconcilable realities seem to collide.
Tramautized, Dane tries to redeem himself towards Younous’ mother, when a decisive turn of events puts everything into question as Dane realizes that he might’ve been taken advantage of from the beginning…
