Drama

Genocide is not far from the minds of the Nyak and Bonande peoples, who have been locked in a decade of civil war. Now, Le President, the president and commander of the Nyak national army, and Colonel Theo, controller of the Bonande rebel army, are determined to end the conflict. A meeting is arranged, but there is still much cynicism on both sides and tension builds as the evening wears on. Drums have been banned as they were the signal that unleashed the slaughter in the past. However, the village jester, Tomoto, a Nyak-hater skeptical of reconciliation, indignantly decides to beat the drums during the festivities. The sound becomes a trigger that releases the feelings of distrust and fear that have been suppressed by both sides.
