The removal of memory – In Africa people often have to stand up to assert their own rights, which comes with serious consequences. Tedy decides to take part in a protest against the restrictions of access to education. The police burst on to the scene and the tension grows. Together with other protesters, Tedy is taken to jail where he will die from hunger and torture. His body will be buried in a secret location together with others’, but he will have fought for a democratic future.
