SUMMARY

One year in the tumultuous life of Thiat, Kilifeu and Gadiaga, members of the group Les Keur Gui.

From the peaceful revolution, passionately led against president Wade at the head of the movement "Y'en a marre", to the uncertain reconquest of the music scene through the development of their next hip-hop album Encyclopedia.

At the end of this immersion: the vision of an African urban youth, the reflections of a new militant generation.
