"Le film se situe au moment où l'islam et le christianisme pénètrent l'Afrique de l'ouest. Pour les deux religions, tous les moyens sont bons pour remplir la mosquée ou l'église: armes à feu, alcool et pacotille de toue sorte. L'islam, après avoir converti la famille royale et les grands dignitaires, se heurte au refus des 'Céddos'. Pour eux, adhérer à une religion étrangère, c'est renoncer au spiritualisme africain. Pour arriver à ses fins, l'Imam usurpe le trône et réduit les récalcitrants à l'esclavage. La princesse, incarnant tout au long du film la résistance de son peuple, tue le marabout-roi. Un film de réflexion rassemblant des faits véridiques qui s'échelonnent sur plusieurs siècles."
