Five young Japanese cyclists travel to Burkina Faso to participate in the most important African stage race, the Tour of the Faso. This is a film about the clashing of two completely different worlds. The structured and monotonous lives of the young men in the Japanese team, not to mention the cold climate of Japan, are in stark contrast with the African reality. Nothing could have prepared these young men for the journey that lay ahead. The race turned out to be a grueling emotional and physical experience.
