El-Hadj Diop, a young Senegalese, is studying in Paris. His residency permit having come to an end, he finds himself faced with a dilemma: either return to Africa, or stay in France illegally. Caught in a turmoil of contradictory feelings, between his desire to go home and use his knowledge to serve his country and that of remaining where he feels comfortable, he is tortured by his beliefs and the desires he hasn't come to terms with: the memory of the man he was, the image of the man he hoped to be, and the realization of what he feels himself becoming. How can you establish a sense of yourself when you feel like a traitor? Between existential questions and doubts of his identity, we follow El-Hadj during these difficult few days.
