The transit city of Bamako, Mali, takes centre stage in this feature-length documentary about a group of would-be migrants whose hopes for entry into the West, and a better life, have been dashed. César, Félou, Érik and Amih have all endured several failed attempts to reach Europe and now find themselves stuck in Bamako, struggling to survive. But with fierce determination and a strong desire to express the inexpressible, they use their words—through poetry, theatre and song—to stand up against the multiple forces that surround and oppress them.
