Salie lives in Paris. Back home on the Senegalese island of Niodior, her football-crazy brother Madick counts on her to get him to France, the promised land where foreign footballers become world famous. The story of Salie and Madick highlights the painful situation of those who emigrate. It is a moving account of one of the great tragedies of our time.
