The weekly wrestling tournaments of the Sudanese Nuba migrants in Khartoum take usually place between the northern and southern Nuba men. The sport helps them strengthen their ethnic identity in a hostile urban environment. Nuba wrestling has developed into a unique mixture of traditional culture and modern sport. The film also illustrates the lives of some of the wrestlers who live in the shanty town.
