Dazzling … a portrait of Kinshasa’s vibrant music scene … a winning package” –The Guardian

The proud, free-willed singer Félicité, from the Congo, leaves the world behind every time she sets foot on a bar stage. But one day Félicité’s son is involved in a terrible motorcycle accident, and she sets out on a breakneck race through the streets of electric Kinshasa— a world of music and dreams—with the help of her fan Tabu … Alain Gomis’s film, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Berlin, is a stunning, music-filled exploration of contemporary urban AFrica.
