Anker 1


A film about the search for the right place. Bintou wants to become a famous seamstress in Africa and Europe, but then she is suddenly asked to take her little daughter, who has been living in a home, to live with her. Nina believes in true love - but it seems impossible between a German and a Burkinabé. Ainssita will go on a trip and explore life in Africa and Europe.

Three stories from Ouagadougou in which cultures collide. Three young women somewhere between tradition and modernity, in a world where boundaries are blurred. In search of a self-determined life.
