Jean Louis, a Central African living in the Cameroonian city of Ngaoundéré, is in search for a better life condition for him and his family. Ascanio is an Italian studying abroad, who is working to become a visual anthropologist. What will come out from this encounter, when they are both striving to achieve their aims?

The film is a reflexive account on how the object of the research, patron-client relations – so the practice of establishing relationships based on trust and mutual solidarity with more resourceful persons -, became impossible to disentangle from the researcher’s identity and subjective experience, once this was put into the same dynamics of togetherness that he was studying.
