How do you fulfill your dreams when you're 20 years old and living in a small isolated village in the Senegalese Sahel? While searching for friendship, love and ways to make contacts overseas, day by day Ibrahima, Djiby and Abou are building a double life for themselves on Facebook. Sending messages in a bottle, writing their diaries? Their posts and research on social media are their only link with the outside world - our world from which they know they are excluded.
