    • Synopsis
    • It is one of the most unknown and poorest countries in the world, and yet full of wealth: Niger. Rich because of the smiles of its people, the vastness of its deserts and the mysticism of its peoples.
      The film accompanies one of the rare expeditions through Niger. Protected from raids and kidnappings by a military convoy, we encounter two of the last nomadic tribes: the Woodabe and the Tuareg.
      The first part of the documentary takes us from the capital Niamey to the Woodabe tribe, their school for nomadic children in Abulbal and the courtship dances of the Guérewol.
      The second part of the documentary takes us to Agadez - the gateway to the desert - through the Aïr Mountains and the Ténéré desert, and finally to the Tuareg festival in Iférouane.
