Starring Aïssa Maïga, Tiécoura Traoré, Hélène Diarra
Her marriage on the rocks, cabaret singer Mele (Aissa Maiga) returns home after a degrading night of work and finds her apartment complex transformed into an elaborate tribunal in which the institutions of international capitalism are being put on trial. Her sister (Djénéba Koné) stands up alongside peasants, farmers and other citizens, appealing to the bureaucrats of the international banking cabal. A long night in pursuit of justice is offset by a sultry evening of Malian life.
