18-year-old Mossane is the fourth child in seven of a very modest family in the suburbs of Dakar. The mother runs a small shop to feed her family. Mossane is a brilliant, intelligent and creative student and fan of Hip Hop and dance. She has to hide her passion to her mother who does not consider an artistic career to be a successful outcome. But Mossane’s ambition goes beyond the borders of her ghetto, she dreams of independence, freedom and a fairer world.
