After the civil war in Chad, a 16-year-old, Atim, sets out to execute the man who killed his father. However, his target turns out to be a devout, charitable baker with a pregnant wife, and, Hamlet-like, Atim procrastinates. It's a worthy film, but a predictable one, and it is laconic in the extreme. The baker can speak only by holding an electronic amplifier to his neck, and he's the chattiest character in it.
