In the south of Kenya every year, when everything is in blossom, the N’dorobos go through the bush in search of honey. Their strange ally in this search is the "euchoshoroi," a bird that has led them to the precious nectar since the beginning of time. For Kiloussou’s people, honey plays a vital role. It provides food and the means to obtain cattle, but it is especially used to make a beer that is the focal point of all of the tribe’s important rites.

Kiloussou is an N’dorobo. He lives near the Masaï Mara animal reserve. Along with his father, M’Zegobe, and his young nephew Kisset, he leaves for the forest in search of honey. In the heart of the bush, Kiloussou and M’zegabe call upon their guide bird, which immediately responds and leads them.

The bird’s cooperation with the N’dorobo is not selfless. Once the honey has been removed, the bird can eat what it likes best without fear of being stung – the wax and the larvae, which the hunters let fall on the ground. And thanks to their faithful ally, Kiloussou and his people can soon return to the village to celebrate their abundant harvest.
