A religious conflict characterizes this drama set in late 19th century Senegal when the local king becomes a Muslim and decides to break up the small Catholic congregation in the village of the Ceddo. The people revolt against the change and kidnap a princess. Eventually the kidnappers are killed and the princess is brought back to the village to confront the Imam, as all the villagers are being given Muslim names. This film was banned in Senegal because the government disagreed with the director's spelling of the word "Ceddo," which they insisted should be spelled with one "d."
