Sanou has been trying for over 50 years to obtain his well deserved military pension. Convinced that he will be paid shortly, Sogo buys a mill on credit for the village. But the money does not arrive. When Sogo is put in prison because he cannot reimburse the loan, the women of the village rally to set him free.”
