Synopsis

Along the Atlantic coast, a Futuristic tower looms over a suburb of Dakar. Ada, 17, is in love with Souleiman, a young construction worker. But she has been promised to another man. One night, Souleiman and his co-workers leave the country by sea, in hope of a better future. Several days later, a fire ruins Ada’s wedding and a mysterious fever starts to spread. Little does Ada know that Souleiman has returned.

“this film will haunt you with a chilling paranormal reframing of a global crisis that is completely disarming and yet still enchanting.”
