MACA, a prison in Abidjan, is one of the most overcrowded in West Africa. Aging and ill, Blackbeard is an increasingly contested kingpin. To maintain his power, he resumes the tradition of "Roman", a ritual that consists of forcing a prisoner to tell stories throughout the night. A young pickpocket is chosen.
