Summary
  • Tasuma: The story of Sogo Sanou, aka Tasuma, a former French soldier who was a member of the African troops known as the Tiralleurs Senegalais, which fought hard for France. Sanou has been trying for over 50 years to obtain his well-deserved military pension. Convinced he will receive the money, he buys a mill on credit for the village. When the money does not arrive, Sanou is put in prison. The women of the village rally to set him free
  • Sia: Kombi is a poverty-stricken city dominated by a tyrant king. In order to bring back prosperity, the king is advised by his priests to make the traditional human sacrifice of a young virgin to a mystical snake god. Sia, the most beautiful young woman in the village, is chosen. Lieutenant Mamadi, her fiancé, rebels against the decision to perform this ritual, and the village becomes divided. Struggles and revelations follow as the villagers confront issues of honor, corruption and power
