Heroine of the Senegalese resistance during the French colony, Aline Sitoé Diatta remains a mythical figure today. A young filmmaker returns to her home in Dakar to give substance to her story in a film that constantly reinvents itself, through a joyful and adventurous approach freely assuming fiction and its appearances.

A short film by Rokhaya Marieme Balde selected for the Festival Vision du Réel 2021 in the category Opening Scenes.
