Marta, a 17-year-old girl, is spending her Christmas holidays in Senegal with her father and her elder brother. Marta's fascination with Khouma, a Senegalese cameraman whose job is to film tourist excursions, will exacerbate her already problematic relationship with her father. Khouma's videos (a compendium of picture-postcard clichés that he shoots to gratify the tourists) will help Marta to discover the inner workings of the exotic holiday business. At the same time, she strikes up a friendship with Aissatou, a girl who cleans the hotel rooms - and this will end up being a more intense relationship than she had anticipated...
