Moussa is a youth from Burkina Faso. He lives in the same village he where he was born along with his parents, his family and his wife, Fátima. He prefers to call her “Bamako” because it is there, in the capital of Mali, where he first met her before they were married and had their baby, Mamadou. The fields yield just enough food for them to survive but this precarious balance has broken down in recent times because of a long drought. Pushed by his responsibility to help his family, and after asking the advice of the elders of the village, Moussa decides to immigrate to Europe.
