MADAME BROUETTE

A murder investigation frames the background for narrating the story of Madame Brouette – a strong woman, who is dedicated to make a living for herself and her daughter in some poor neighbourhood in Dakar. Flash-backs develop the events which lead to the murder of the police man Naago, who was also her boyfriend and lover. Neighbours comment on her life and her good character – did she really murder Naago?
