In this picaresque fantasy-drama, disaffected young lovers Anta and Mory, fed up with Dakar, long to escape to the glamour and comforts they imagine France has to offer, but their plan is confounded by obstacles both practical and mystical. A stunning mix of the surreal and the naturalistic in which director Djibril Diop Mambéty paints a fractured portrait of the disenchantment of post-independence Senegal in the early 1970s.
