Summary

To the East of Cameroon, grouped on the roadside near a dispensary, surrounded by deforestation and the creation of cobalt mines, Baka Pygmies try to cope with the shock of modernity about which nothing has prepared them.
Working with them in the village of Moangue - Le Bosquet since many years, anthropologists and filmaker deviate from their research fields and take step back to make the observation of this mutation.
