A man sets off and leaves his son Seydou in the care of his dearest friend, Malick, together with a trunk containing all his possessions. Seydou becomes a man but Malick never mentions the treasure he is guarding. When the young man decides to marry Aminata, his mother informs him of the possessions guarded by his father's friend.
