The film is inspired by a story written by the French poet Jacques Prévert. Antelopes live in Africa with white people and have their own lives that sometimes become very dangerous due to the rifles of white men. The film is black and white and narrated by a child.
Religious dogmatism is controversial, but for ages the current topic, which is the inspiration for the movie " You Shall Not Leave the Way! ". In seven minutes, we follow the evolution of the main character, well brought up Catholic, on his journey through life, on which he is faced with the challenges of the present days. In the humorous metaphors he stands on many crossroads of life, where he is accompanied by the voice of his parents with their 11th commandment " You Shall Not Leave the Way! ". Our hero is free of doubt, and confidently follows the way till the denouement, which is for him totally unexpected, but it is asking audience the unanswered question: Has God, if he exists, thought it really this way?
The film can be also understood generally as uncritical acceptance of any ideology from generation to generation.
