In this film by Abderrahmane Sissako, Melé is a bar singer, her husband Chaka is out of work, and the couple is on the verge of breaking up. African civil society spokesmen have taken proceedings against the World Bank and the IMF whom they blame for Africa's woes. Chaka does not seem to be concerned by Africa's desire to fight for its rights.
