Synopsis
Gambia. A youngster tries to improve his lot in his home country after a discouraging return from Europe. Without work, all his hopes are pinned on a small piece of arid land. He would like to build something, but he has no resources. Or sell, but this would go against his mother’s wishes. And the thought of trying his luck in Italy again creeps into his mind.
