A poetic love story set amidst the country and customs of Senegal marks the feature film debut of Ramata-Toulaye Sy.

Banel and Adama are fiercely in love. The young married couple lives in a remote village in northern Senegal. For them, nothing else exists. Yet their perfect everlasting love is on a collision course with their community’s customs. Because in this world, there is no room for passion, let alone chaos.
