Most of the walls of houses in Saint Louis, Senegal, are covered with paintings depicting the master of the Mourid Brotherhood, Amadou Bamba. These frescoes are also to be found on ships' flags, on barouches, and in bedrooms. Most of them bear the signature of Thiam B.B. This film introduces us to Mourid ideas through these paintings and a meeting with Thiam, a mystical, vagabond painter.
