A film that lets you experience the life of a group of fishermen in Blangua, a village on the banks of the river Chari, not far from where it flows into Lake Chad. Here, on fringe of the Sahara, you can find one of the larger inland fisheries in Africa. Sit back and enjoy the ride down the river in the pirogue and join in the fishing activities. You will see how humour and close relationships are important ingredients in a depiction of life, where cultural encounters and natural conditions with extreme variations make great demands on the ability to readjust to the surroundings.
