The Film

Against all odds and her husband's wishes, a downtrodden housewife in Burkina Faso sets out to earn enough money to educate her daughter. But just when success seems to be in reach, she is forced to confront a saboteur — as well as the prejudices and expectations of society where women are discouraged from working. Based on a true story, Bintou casts a comic spotlight on the classic battle between the sexes.
