Synopsis

Lamb means fight in the wolof language and it is a traditional Senegal sport. In the film made in the times when the language of the young cinematography corresponded with the need to restore faith in own culture it is presented as a kind of ethnic and social frame identified with the essence of the nation. As a part of celebration, it is of considerable importance for the society, while at the same time it is presented as an expression of growing self-confidence of a young state.
