Director : Simplice Ganou


Leave your family at age 7, 12 or 16. Travel to a strange place. Make your home in front of a store, in a video club, by a bus station. Learn how to use drugs, beg, steal, scarper, fight, stop feeling frightened. Make friends and enemies. Move into a new world. Adapt.
Stories told and journeys made : this film is an insider look at some ‘Bakoroman’ from Gounghin, a neighbourhood of central Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, in search of a better life.
