Intimate and emblematic portraits tell the current destiny of the peuls of West Africa. In Mali, one of the poorest states of the world, these people are confronted with the terrible question of their future. In a Malian society full of transformation, can the traditions and the way life of these seminomad shepherds continue to exist in front of the inevitable modernization of the country? Through at touching meeting with this traditional culture, the narrative shows the universal movement of transformation of rural mentalities.
