"Mow ka zoètba, mow ya watba".

We are not "fugitives" (a derogatory term for IDPs in Moore). We are "arrivals" (watba).
In Burkina Faso, more than 1.8 million people have fled the violence of terrorist attacks. This documentary film gives voice to internally displaced people who express themselves through a theatrical piece to turn the page on their flight and heal the wounds of these painful memories.
