Summary


On the edge of the Sahara, in Burkina Faso, the village of Kamsé is being destroyed by the effects of creeping desertification. To ensure the village’s survival, the villagers decided to embark on the planning of a perimeter. Armed with shovels and pickaxes, they will build dikes, plant hedges and trees to protect the soil from wind, gully erosion and herds of animals that grass on what little pasture manages to grow. The battle is mainly lead by the women, under a fierce sun. But not far, djihadists are approaching weeks after weeks. So will another battle starts soon, this time not against desertification?
