Simplice Ganou
2011 - France/Burkina Faso - Couleur - 62'

Leaving your family at the age of seven, twelve, sixteen: a leap into the unknown. Taking up residence in front of a shop, in a video store, nearby a bus station. Learning how to take drugs, how to go begging, to steal, flee, fight, and no longer feel fear. Making friends and enemies. Getting integrated into a new world. Getting used to... Stories worth listening, paths worth following: the film portrays a few “Bakoroman” from Gounghin, a central neighborhood in Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso.
