Several intimate and emblematic portraits tell the current destiny of the Peuls of West Africa. In Mali, one of the poorest states in the world, these people who made the West dream, face a terrible question, their future. In a transforming Malian society, can the traditions and way of life of these semi-nomad shepherds survive the inevitable modernization of the country?
