Synopsis

Bintou wants to make sure that her daughter goes to school, but her husband Abel doesn’t think it’s worth it because money should only go to the boys’ education. Bintou won’t give up and starts her own business to earn the extra money. But Abel, scared that he is losing control tries to sabotage her efforts.
