Synopsis: After several years in France, the Nigerian reggae singer Salim Jah Peter returned to his native country to organize a peace caravan. After a military coup, Niger was in a full transition to democracy, and preparing to elect a new president. The implementation of the project was difficult. But when the politically-engaged singer returns home a hero, he has to face a reality he had too easily forgotten.
