Linguère Ramatou, an aging woman, "as rich as the World Bank," returns home to her village and lavishes luxuries on the town in exchange for the murder of Dramaan Drameh, the local shopkeeper who abandoned her after a love affair which left her pregnant at age 16. A comic and bitter satire of today’s Africa.
