Laamb

The rules are simple in Senegalese wrestling: First man down loses. The sport derives from ancient ritual manhood trials, but in modern times has developed into a national sport with packed stadiums, huge prizes and extreme idol worship. Today, the fight is supplemented with bare knuckle boxing but without any protection. "Laamb" is the story of the 22 year old cattle herder Ndoff and his attempts to become a pro wrestler in Senegal. He has been chosen to compete in an annual talent event in Dakar, and faces a possible breakthrough. "Laamb" is a modern tale about fighting one¿s way out of poverty, and it is the story of a sport filled with myths and extreme voodoo rituals.
