Cabascabo, a veteran of the French colonial army in Indochina, returns to his home town in Niger. Acclaimed by friends and relatives, he lavishes his money and belongings on them until he is left with nothing. In fragmented flash-backs, he tells the story of his adventures before setting off into the bush. Oumarou Ganda from the Moi, un noir directed by Jean Rouch, plays himself in this introspection on integration, injustice and homecoming.
