Synopsis

In the North of Benin, the mythical caravaneers have exchanged their donkeys for huge trucks known as “Titans”. But even if the tools are different, traditions, based on a tolerant Islam are maintained. Wealth is redistributed as these caravaneers build Mosques and schools for the population. In Titans and Mosques these caravaneers continue to travel up and down West Africa. They defend their genuine vision of an Islamic society which combines benefits and faith, when everywhere else the Jihad and the Charia law are expanding, with the help of the petrodollars.
