The documentary follows an ordinary day of a young girl in a rural village in Sahel. The school education, the difficult access to health care, the family traditions, the industriousness of a community for self-support, the prospects for economic emancipation, the role of women in a changing society. The doc is enriched by interviews with rural population, women entrepreneurs, local authorities, health personnel, UN international agencies, NGOs, ministries and various associations active in the area. The project was supported by European funds and the involvement of an international cooperation network.
