Mathias, a young French-Guinean man, travels back to Guinea to find his biological father but is mugged on arrival. His friendship with an endearing tramp and the discovery that his father is an old, wasted alcoholic, frame this shimmering portrait of a rootless generation. The town and its inhabitants are the object of a meeting; that of a silent but determined man and those who host him, a troubled milieu, a kingdom of wheeling and dealing and nightclubs.
