"Rolex the Portuguese" tried his luck in neighboring Burkina Faso, without success. Now he is back in Abidjan, earning a lot of money. With his companions, aged between 15 and 25, he lives off the informal economy, in particular "grazing", i.e. scams on the Internet, taking advantage of the financial largesse of white women in search of love or sensations. Together, they then spend the money in the maquis (drinking establishments) or clubs. The protagonists of Vivre Riche belong to a mutating youth, disoriented by the years of civil war, which intends no more nor less "to cash in the colonial debt".
