African journalism hero, a martyr celebrated by Alpha Blondy, Tiken Jah Fakoly and hip hop star Smockey.
"Borry Bana" is a phrase which means in Bambara language "The flight is over." It was used by the famous African fighter Samory Toure, pursued by French settlers; he decided in his flight to face his destiny. Then he expressed « Borry Bana this camp will be the last». Norbert Zongo used this term when he founded his own newspaper, "The Independent", stating "The Independent will be independent or will not." It was his last battle. This film returns to the case of the assassination of investigative journalist Norbert Zongo, who upset Burkina Faso. A tribute to a man who devoted his life to defend the weak and the voiceless.
