Synopsis

Born in a small African village, Mamadou N'Diaye settled in the little town of Roubaix, in the North of France, in the 1930’s where he became a local figure.

Mamadou started as a boxer and then became a famous chiropractor. In his office in a working-class neighbourhood, he treated thousands of patients, including many Belgians who did not hesitate to cross the border to be treated.

He left behind 2 daughters whom he did not acknowledged and who are now trying to understand their own history through the testimonies of those who knew him.
