Banel and Adama are fiercely in love.
Living in a remote village in northern Senegal, for the young couple only their love exists. However, their perfect love seems on a collision course with their family’s traditions. Adama is pressured to take the position of village chief, but Banel and Adama have different plans – that is until something in the air shifts. A drought strikes and the cattle begin to die, changing everything.

Award-winning filmmaker Ramata-Toulaye Sy’s breathtaking and lyrical debut feature follows the fated lovers in their quest to carve a life for themselves beyond the expectations of others.
The film premiered in Competition at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, making Sy only the second Black woman in the history of the festival to do so.
This film is supported by Reclaim the Frame.
