Following the death of her parents, Alice Diop immerses herself for a month in the environment where her mother grew up, in Dakar. She depicts the courtyard of the family home and the different generations of women who live there, recording their confidences, their dreams and their struggles. As the daughter of exiles, the filmmaker takes a tender yet distant look at a life that could have been her own.
