    • Synopsis
    • On the road from Coutonou (Benin) to Lomé (Togo), Arnaud a taxi driver explains us how the petrol stolen in Nigeria arrives on the Beninese black market transported by these unreliable homemade scooter-tankers driven by disabled people that they localy call “bombs” due to the danger they represent by circulating on the road. More than showing what people there are ready to do to earn few cents to survive, this film evidences the inbalance between what Eastern life standard considers as normal and what African standard considers as luxury.
