Fifteen-year-old schoolgirl Awa is happily living her teenage years alongside her twin brother Adama, who dreams of traveling Europe. When their grandmother dies, their Aunt Fatou and their Uncle Atoumane plan to marry to preserve the family unit, but Fatou doesn’t love Atoumane. Tired of waiting to consummate his marriage, Atoumane commits an unspeakable act.

Awa, une écolière de quinze ans, vit avec bonheur son adolescence aux côtés de son frère jumeau Adama, qui rêve de voyager en Europe. Lorsque leur grand-mère meurt, leur tante Fatou et leur oncle Atoumane prévoient de se marier pour préserver l’unité familiale, mais Fatou n’aime pas Atoumane. Fatigué d’attendre pour consommer son mariage, Atoumane commet un acte indicible.
