Using camera close-ups and dramatic views developed in the American western and crime movies, Mali director Sega Coulibaly has added some popular appeal to his story about a man wrongly sentenced to fifteen years of hard labor. The prisoner is released ahead of time and vows revenge on the three men responsible for sending him to jail. One by one he cunningly plots their demise, as well as the death of his wife who took up with one of the men after her husband was imprisoned. What he does not know is that she was forced into her liaison because no one was there to provide for her and their son -- she had no choice.
