A movie by Burkinabé filmmaker Gaston JM Kaboré, summarized as, "Nine-year-old Rabi acquires a pet tortoise after his father falls off his bicycle swerving to avoid it. The boy's fascination with nature manifests itself in turning his pet on its back and watching it struggle. The boy is heartbroken when the tortoise is taken away from him, but his grandfather helps him find his own tortoise which speaks to him so eloquently about his abuse that the boy eventually sets it free."
