Nothing is what it seems in this surprising and exciting supernatural story; a unique film and cinematographic experience. Diop won the Grand Jury Prize at the last Cannes festival, and is one of the most promising new filmmakers.

Along the Atlantic coast, a soon-to-be-inaugurated futuristic tower looms over a suburb of Dakar. Ada, 17, is in love with Souleiman, a young construction worker. But she has been promised to another man. One night, Souleiman and his co-workers leave the country by sea, in hope of a better future.
