Run is running away… He has just killed his country's Prime Minister. He therefore has to take the face and clothes of a madman wandering throughout the city for months. His life returns to him in flashes: his childhood with master Tourou, when he dreamt of becoming a rainmaker, his incredible adventures with Greedy Gladys and his militia past as a Young Patriot in Ivory Coast's political and military conflict. Run has not chosen all of these lives. He stumbled into them, escaping from one life to another. This is why he is called Run.
"In terms of filmmaking, I was interested in shifting from the dreamlike world of childhood – full of natural elements – to an urban world, that of the Young Patriots, with saturated, discordant and sometimes overlapping sounds... I wanted to start in a harmonious world and end up in chaos..." Philippe Lacôte
