While Chad will be at war again at the time of Haroun's latest film, A Screaming Man, Daratt finds the country winding down a conflict. It isn't winding down to everyone's satisfaction, however. One village is outraged to learn that the country's truth and reconciliation commission has recommended against prosecuting alleged war criminals. A blind elder orders his grandson Atim (Ali Bacha Barkaim) to go to the capital and kill a man named Nassara, who had killed the father Atim never knew.
As a civilian, Nassara (Youssouf Djaoro of Screaming Man) runs a bakery. After stalking him awhile, Atim confronts his target during his morning distribution of day-old loaves to the neighborhood poor. Nassara assumes that Atim's just another charity case and offers him a loaf. Atim takes a couple of bites and spits them out contemptuously -- but doesn't shoot the baker. He comes back the next day to tell Nassara that he doesn't want charity, but a job.
