Jorge’s son will confront Kalule who shoots him. Despite the death of the young boy, Kalule only receives a minimum sentence and the tension escalates...

The film notably received post-production backing as part of the world cinema fund of the CNC. Arizone will handle the French distribution towards the end of August 2014.
