Marlyse, Jack and Robert-Alain are "returnees" in Cameroon. After years of wandering the borders of Europe failing to build a new life, they have all taken the opposite path. After several failed escapes, many taken risks and misery, they take a rare decision among illegal migrants. Go back voluntarily, penny-less, the return of shame. If life on the road is a physical pain, the return is an emotional suffering and the main difficulty is to be accepted again in their family and social circle, who are not prepared to welcome them back. How to accept that the one we counted on more than anything comes back empty-handed?
