Synopsis

Duga or Vultures are birds that live off dead animals. This film is about modern Burkinabe society where everyone is on the make like the vultures; and Animists, Muslims, and Christians are all entrenched in their own practices. The film rejects this religious sectarianism. Good friendships can be forever!
