A businessman is struck with impotence and his attempts at a cure prove disastrous. In this fierce satire, Ousmane Sembène lashes the bourgeoisie of an unnamed, newly independent, African state (but clearly Senegal) for their slavish imitation of their past colonial masters, down to their corruption and conspicuous consumption.
