Four childhood friends in their forties reunite on the initiative of the oldest, 39-year-old Ndewa. They kept in touch over the years and when they take stock of their current life, everything is bad. Ndewa’s idea is a rather unique and original reunion in an isolated wasteland, with everyone bringing important objects or symbols of their past life to be literally buried and start a brand-new life. But unwittingly Ndewa is about to bury the key that is going to change everything.
