From North Cameroon to Chad, from the land of the ancient elephants to the dunes of Kanem, this film is a non-stop journey in the form of a logbook, through a little known, almost forbidden land that is a wealth of astonishing countryside and unusual people. The Kapsiki villages hanging off the side of volcanic peaks, our itinerary of contrast and adventure continues towards the wildlife reserves of Waza then on to N’Djaména and the Chari River. Finally we arrive at the banks of Lake Chad with its fishermen and its polders in the middle of the desert. And to finish, the oasis which borders the small town of Mao, in the province of Kanem.
