At once sharp and poetic, this film explores issues such as globalisation, development, money and love in the Maasai culture. Leaving stereotypes behind, the documentary shows us a people greatly aware of the surrounding world. The film will confront us with our habitual conceptions and pre-justices about indigenous peoples and about the actual meaning of development.
The Ngorongoro district, home to the Maasai people, is one of the world's most popular safari-locations. The Maasai have maintained their traditional way of life for centuries, and still very much under the influence of both global warming and the financial crisis.
Over the course of one year, this documentary film follows three Maasai. They are indigenous peoples with modern problems.
