This film about cassava production highlights the traditional wisdom of the Gbaya culture in the Central African Republic. The Gbaya make the best possible use of the resources their natural environment has to offer, regardless of productivity or profitability. This allows them to have a variety of food types, guaranteeing an abundant food supply. At a time when food aid is being proposed as a solution to rising fears of famine in the world, the author seeks to show that in central Africa, traditional cultures are able to prosper in harmony with their environment.
