    • Synopsis
    • April 2006. 13 000 members of the Dajo ethnic group have taken refuge on the plain of Gouroukoun in eastern Chad. They are all survivors of the Darfur conflict. Secluded in the camp they have constructed, they create their own way of life and means of survivals.
      The filmmaker joins the refugees in this prison without walls, capturing everyday life as it is gradually re-embraced. A hint of war seeps into every image, into every moment: we sense it ready to reawaken behind the nearby hills, we imagine it in the stories told by refugees, children sketch it in their drawings, we hear it in songs of battle crooned by little girls...
      And yet this war film contains no images of war...it is rather a postwar film.
