Koni and Djimi, two childhood friends, flee their village after a tax collector`s visit degenerates into a riot. They join the rebels in the bush, convinced that they can at last bring justice to their put-upon compatriots. In both the armed and ideological struggle, a gulf grows between the two friends. To bridge it, they must admit that the cure is often worse than the disease. Daresalam, the first Chadian feature film, is inspired by the story of Hissene Habre and Goukouni Weddeye, both past presidents of Chad.
