Story: Doukouré, Abidjan (Ivory Coast). A conflict has just ended and left a ghost neighbourhood: a mass grave, a list of deads, a scared child; young people look for a better future; or, simply, to take revenge. On April 12, at least 80 people were killed by pro-Gbagbo militiamen and mercenaries, at the end of a conflict between the former president and Ouattara, the elected head of State. A conflict between southerners and northerners, christians and muslims, 'true' Ivorians and 'fake' Ivorians, too. Now, Ouattara promises dialogue, truth and reconciliation: a new perspective on life.
