This is a photo-documentary made through close collaboration between the anthropologist and the protagonist.
The main idea behind this film, made by stills, is to describe the struggle of a young poor man in Urban Africa; how he tries to earn some money, to get a house, to be able to marry and finally be a respected man. He tries out a lot of different relations and ways to develop his business, but he meets a lot of misfortune. Some how paradoxically, this makes him a better Muslim.
