Storyline



©
The film shows through the example of five protagonists from Burkina Faso and the Côte d'Ivoire how women shoulder the burden of daily life and survival in many families. Some do the very heavy work of making charcoal, others grow vegetables or make millet beer to finance their children's education and so help them towards a better life.
