This is about a house in Bamako – an artist’s house. This house is a link to his parents, to his history, to his memories. One day in 2008, his sisters are unlawfully evicted from it.
This is also about the artist’s country, Mali. A country he has witnessed falling into war – regardless of the tolerance that has been its tradition ever since it gained independence.
Such events will lead this artist to speak out and commit himself to the fight for truth. [Synopsis courtesy of Cannes Film Festival]
