Synopsis

Aya is 19 and living a happy life in her vibrant working-class neighbourhood in the late 70s with her loving, if complicated family. She goes out dancing and flirting with her two best friends, and is making plans to become a doctor. But when her friend Adjoua becomes pregnant through the son of one of the area’s most powerful and feared men, things become a bit more complicated. Lovingly crafted through hand-drawn animation, this is a lively, colourful and celebratory film, with interesting messages around gender equality and community. The inherent optimism of its central characters is reinforced through an eclectic, toe-tapping soundtrack.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
