The General and the Frogs satirizes the life of six, desperately poor and vastly motivated students at a frog-infested African campus. Their country, famously vulnerable to cyclical coup d'etat, is ruled by a dyslexic and tyrannical General. As the nation is chocking under the miasma of despotism, campus endures the theocratic chauvinism of the Islamists-controlled students' union. In the turbulent chaos of their bubbly existence, the destitute six survive a brutal suppression of an uprising against the General and achieve academic excellence, but a gruesome murder in their social landscape casts an insufferable sense of sorrow at the end of a remarkable odyssey. This is a tale about the power of wit and humor and the triumph of the human spirit at a time lived most dangerously.
