A fratricide war between two tribes in the Congo in the pre-colonial period: the Tsembo and the Tsoundi. Their alliance is guaranteed by the marriage of the son and daughter of the tribes' respective rulers, but the infidelity of the wife, Hakoula, who gives herself to a slave, sparks off a war of terrible bloodshed. Hakoula's son will re-establish peace in the country and free all the slaves.
For the first time in African cinema, the taboo subject of slavery amongst Africans in the pre-colonial period is dealt with. The film is based on the novel by Jean Malonga La légende de Mfoumou Ma Mazono.
Production company: Sebastian Kamba e Ministère de la Coopération Français.
