Forced marriage – The daughter of the chief of the Bangoulap tribe is getting married and everyone is celebrating… except for the girl in question: having returned to the village only to fulfil her father’s wish, she is forced to marry the warrior who has contributed to the safety of the village, a very old man. And whilst life goes on as usual inside the set traditional rituals, the new bride remains alone with her anger.
