Produced by La Petite Reine - Reine Sales

    “It’s the story of two guys, Moltès, a mob boss, and Reggio, a screw.
    Like all mob bosses, Moltès winds up in prison. With Reggio’s help, he gets to play lotto every week and one day he hits the jackpot.
    Reggio’s wife leaves for Africa, playing at being a volunteer nurse for a rally. What has she done with the winning ticket?
    Moltès escapes, obliging Reggio to came along with him. They head for Bamako.
    It’s also the story of: Turk, Moltès’s sworn enemy; his bodyguard, a giant with steel teeth; a large unhinged wheel; rebel Tuareg; a mad chase across the desert…
    It’s the story of two guys that nothing will drive apart.”
