Cannes-selected African drama co-starring Danny Glover about personal drama juxtaposed with international political drama. Set in the courtyard of a mud-walled house in Bamako, capital of Mali, the film tells the intimate personal story of the Malian couple who live there. Melé (Aïssa Maïga) is a bar singer while her husband Chaka (Tiécoura Traoré) is out of work. The strain this places on their relationship is threatening to tear them apart. Their story is told alongside a very public trial - African civil society spokesmen have started proceedings against the World Bank and the IMF whose disastrous policies they blame for Africa's plague of debt and impoverishment. Against the backdrop of African leaders' impassioned pleas for international recognition, life carries on as normal in the courtyard. A colourful, vital drama with satiric tones and flashes of humour that shows the personal and the political side of enforced poverty.
