Set in Niger, a country patiently waiting for a leader to emerge, The Man And The Storyteller creates that leader in the form of a rural Hausa woman, Mariamma. When the road weary Ilou returns to his village for the rainy season and reunites with his wife Mariamma, she becomes consumed with the desire to delve into the mind of her solitary husband and live out her dreams. Using her own first hand experience, hearsay and folklore, Mariamma boldly presents the life of Ilou as a complex traditional man astutely examining his tumultuous life. The Man And The Storyteller views a turning point in their lives, a single year when Ilou and Mariamma see that their lives will not be the same as the lives their children are about to live. Mariamma emerges as a vibrant storyteller who begins to incorporate Hausa folklore and a vivid imagination to display her vision of who Ilou is, his wandering life on the road and her hopes for the future through education for herself and their children.
