Uncontrollable jealousy has unexpected consequences as an older woman confronts her beautiful, flirtatious daughter.

Against the backdrop of middle-class Kinshasa, an aging wife hangs on to her role as the most important woman in her husband's life. But her dominance is threatened by her beautiful - and flirtatious - daughter who seems hell-bent on stealing her man and her position. All is not as it seems though, and as jealousy threatens to get out of hand, events take an unexpected turn, one, which will leave no one untouched.
