To keep himself and his family afloat, Gaston grafts away as a docker at the port in Abidjan. When his son Faustin wants to go to police school and is required to pay tuition fees, Gaston is stretched to his financial limits. He takes out an emergency loan, but is mugged by a gang shortly afterwards. The gang`s boss is called Cercueil and Gaston`s life takes a drastic turn when he meets him.
The role of the gangster boss in this thrilling drama was played by Bruno Henry, a famous actor and dancer from France. (He also plays one of the leading roles in the feature film W.A.K.A by Françoise Ellong, which will be shown on 17 September.) As he is "an African at heart", he thought the opportunity to travel to the Ivory Coast for the shooting of SANS REGRET was "fantastic". He liked the plot and has "great respect" for director Jacques Trabi, because he "fought for eight years" to be able to shoot this film.
The film received its first international recognition when it won the Jury Prize at Luxor African Film Festival in 2016.
