Bella is a magnificent young Guinean lady working as a
hostess in a cabaret under the influence of a mafia group. In her
determination not to accept her fate, her fight against this environment is violent but ultimately leads to the rebirth of Bell, who sets out to revisit her past to build the future. This leads her to searching for her abandoned child, evidence of her painful past. Bella meets a pretty adolescent, Vanessa, now adopted by a couple from Paris. How does she reconnect with this child who knows nothing of her biological mother from Africa? How does she rebuild her life after so many years of wandering?
