After a successful outing in the great Jihad of Northern Nigeria of the 1800s in Katsina Sector in which the dominant tribe, the Habe, was routed, a minority Fulani Clan steadfastly holds on to its affinity, its culture and its tradition overwhelmingly assimilating the dominant tribe. But one thing the victorious Clan failed to do was to conquer the language of the vanquished on that they were assimilated. Two centuries later, a boy from the victorious Fulani Clan is puzzled that his Clan has lost its tongue in the process and that has made him restless. He sets about challenging the great loss where he meets with obstacles at every turn. He becomes undaunted against traditional jokes coming from the Habe that is making the victory recorded by his Clan as if its legitimacy depended on the tongue issue. He vows to fight on.
