Chaka, 13 years old, and Hadjara, 18 years old, are brother and sister. They decide to leave their village and debt-ridden parents to take their chance in the big city of Abidjan.
While Hadjara, the older sister, finds a job, Chaka is drawn to Kouess, the head of a gang. He soon dives into vandalism, drugs, easy money and violence.
Hadjara will stop at nothing to get him out of this delinquency.
