Summary:
On May 26, 1990, Cameroon declared itself a multi-party democracy after 30 years of totalitarian rule. In a country with 200 tribes and as many languages, a colonial heritage of both British and French domination, and a clash between Christian and Muslim ideologies, the transition to a democracy has not been easy. This film surveys the country's current political climate and gathers the thoughts of Cameroonians from all social strata and economic backgrounds to reveal a collage of the birth of a uniquely African democracy.
