English:"Tears of emigration" is the story of my mother who awaits my father, who left there over 20 years. It is also the story of my sister who now awaits her husband left five years ago and my niece that she does not know his father.
With my camera, I'm leaving after two years of absence in my community
Agnam Lidoubé, a Senegalese town of Fouta, to understand how and why my mother spent all those long years to wait.
