A housewife in her fifties discovers her true self when she has to accept her husband's second wife into her home.
From Senegal comes a brave, controversial film set in the secret world of multiple spouse households. KA's film homes in on one story as Madeleine and her husband's new, young second wife develop a relationship far beyond conventional norms. The intimacy has the potential to blow apart a stable domestic situation, but it also has the potential to rewrite the story of both women's lives. A bold and exquisitely tender film, beautifully acted and sensitively filmed against the backdrop of colourful, beguiling Dakar.
