Summary

With his colleagues and friends Djamgouno and Pangalé, Jean Rouch films Germaine Dieterlen' s journey as she sets out to meet the places and people that have marked her life as an ethnologist.
After a first stop to greet a Malian met many years before at a local festival, Germaine and her friends settle down not far from a cliff she once explored. She depicts and tells the story of a place which, by the very admission of this pioneer of ethnography, is far from having surrendered all its mysteries.
