Synopsis

Fad,Jal is a Serere Senegalese village. At school, children learn, in French, the grammar and history of France. Villagers practice their religion in a church, a vestige of colonialism.
At the foot of a tree, the ancestor and a griot tell in Wolof the history of the village to the children, its creation, its customs, its traditions. This is an opportunity to discover the crafts, agricultural techniques and the difficulty of exploiting the land because of the drought. In parallel, the daily Serere is confronted to the governmental policy which appropriates from now on the lands, previously transmitted orally between the villagers.
