Having travelled by foot through two countries, the herd boy Hôr arrives in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. He is poor and looking for a place to start a new life. He bumps into Tierno, a street boy with quite a few tricks up his sleeve. The two boys become blood brothers but they both face huge problems. There are no jobs to be found and poverty is about to force Tierno’s girlfriend into prostitution. Hôr is hungry but his principles forbid him to steal, even while on the verge of starvation.
