Polo (one of the Bakoroman filmed by Ganou in 2011) has been roaming around Ouagadougou since childhood. At 29, he is the eldest of a group who lives off odd jobs and getting high. A harsh immersion in reality as rough as the asphalt missing from the streets, the film is above all a view from the inside.
