Synopsis

Jimmy, a young African, returns to his village in Niger with a suitcase packed with cowboy outfits for all his friends: no longer are they Kali, Ibrahim, or Boubakar, but instead they are Black Cooper, James Kelly, and Queen Christine. Like real cowboys, they ride out into the range, antagonizing the village by teasing the chief’s cattle, getting drunk, and playing poker.
