A film from the Ivory Coast is already a rarity. But to have it shot entirely in a prison environment is a real surprise. La Nuit des Rois is a fictional film that gives us an insight into the secret life of the MACA in Abidjan, one of the most overcrowded prisons in West Africa. We discover a kingpin at the end of his reign who invents the myth of Sheherazade...

"A gripping and seductive film that is very much off the beaten track". Cineuropa
