Ibrahim has received a 25,000 franc money order from his nephew in Paris and needs to get it cashed, but finds himself frustrated by bureaucratic obstacles. A keen-eyed character study of a vain man who trades in favours and promises to find a way to get his money as the local community gets wind of his new fortune. This sharp satire on post-colonial Dakar set a new course for African cinema as confident, independent and radical.
