A celebration is underway to the sounds of chants, from which we hear “our daughter is so respectable”. Amid all this, in an attempt to fake her menstrual period, Zuzana is exposed and has only one day to revert her virginity and present a credible respectable image for her wedding night. The eyes of the women around her tend from repression to the assurance that everything will be fine. However, in this film by Senegalese filmmaker Moly Kane, the expectations of what a woman must be coerce the irrevocability of a happy ending. *(K.M)
