The story follows two French citizens, Oliver, an engineer, and Pauline, a teacher, who decide they want to live in the prosperous United States of Africa. After failing to obtain an entry visa, they decided to emigrate illegally, and they then begin a journey of hardships and discovery as fugitives of the state. Winner of the Best Sets Award and The ECOWAS African Integration Award.
