Overview

Mahamet-Saleh Haroun relates a deeply moving tale, set in war-torn Chad, of tensions arising between a father and his son when job cuts result in the former's demotion. Pride, envy and poverty take their tragic toll... Youssouf Djaoro is particularly affecting as the father, while the widescreen camerawork highlights the broader relevance of an otherwise piercingly intimate story
