In Dogon country, the dry season is rugged and water is very rare. The pond of Entongo is one of the few in the region not to run dry. It protects the sacred fish: the silurid.

Once a year, for several centuries, all the men in the Bamba region gather together for an extraordinary fishing expedition. Each fisherman tries to trap one of these fish, which is reputed to bring happiness to anyone who catches it.

For the first time, young Idrissa is going to participate to the event, and Amadoun, his father, will lead his son to the heart of Dogon culture.
