The Harmattan, a mythical name that evokes the literature and ancient tales of North Africa. This powerful and nomadic wind carries the sands of the Sahara to the Gulf of Guinea, particularly Senegal and as far as Cape Verde.

Antoine goes to the Mauritanian border to meet the populations most affected in their daily lives by this wind which is abhorred by the locals.

From plastic bags dragged over hundreds of kilometres to crops made impossible by this dry, hot and sandy wind, the Harmattan has many surprising facets.
