This amusing docu-drama tells the story of Cotos, a noble Gallic warrior living on his farm in the land of Eduens, what is now Central Burgundy. This is the time before the Roman invasion of Gaul. Cotos is going to the neighboring city of Bibracte to participate in an important vote and establish his son as a genuine warrior. Accompanied by Bus, the spear bearer, and Desprogiagos, the shield bearer, Cotos heads off on his journey, led by a mysterious and confusing voice that happens to be the documentary narrator.
