Spectacular, thrilling and absorbing, Night of the Kings is both an exhilarating tale of survival in one of the world's most unforgiving environments and a beautiful ode to the power of storytelling.

When a young man is sent to an infamous prison, located in the middle of the Ivorian forest and ruled by its inmates, he is chosen to take part in a storytelling ritual just as a violent battle for control bubbles to the surface. After discovering the grim fate that awaits him at the end of the night, he begins to narrate the mystical life of a legendary outlaw to make his story last until dawn and give himself any chance of survival.

"Night of the Kings is a riveting and radiant tribute to the power of storytelling, which gives voice to voiceless, humanity to the demonized, and hope to the hopeless." - Kristy Puchko, Pajiba
