A student returns from France to his home in Nouadhibou and drifts aimlessly among the locals having lost touch with his roots. The story is told in a succession of scenes from the daily life of the various characters in the town. An electrician with his apprentice, a Chinese immigrant, and the local women. The student finds himself a stranger in his own land and his cold detached presence echoes the film’s visual style as it reflects on the displacement associated with the culture’s nomadic life.
