Salie lives in France and her brother Madické, from his island of Niodior, dreams of joining her. She lives in exile, while he dreams of France as a promised land where Senegalese footballers can be successful. How can she show him the dark side of immigration and call out the lies of those who “already came back” and help spread the myth of France as an Eldorado?
