This sample of African avant-garde creation, based on capturing daily routine through quiet observation, shows the everyday life of women and children set against surrealist images of enormous pieces of dead animals being moved, portioned and processed.

This observational film, marked by subtle shifts in colour, shows ever-present children watching on as standard food preparation activities and the not-so-organised production of meat products are carried out in the village.
