This Senegalese film is based on the play The Visit by Friedrich Dürrenmatt. The Wolof-language film satirizes the influence of western materialism on traditional Africa as Linguerre (Ami Diakhate), a Senegalese woman who had became pregnant 30 years earlier by a local merchant (Mansour Diouf), returns to her village after a life in exile. The man denied her claims that he was the child's father and accused her of adultery with other men from the village. The woman's life in exile has actually been quite prosperous, while her village is in a state of poverty. Linguerre is wealthy, and is willing to bail the village out of its financial misfortune -- in exchange for the life of the man who betrayed her decades earlier. The film holds a sharply critical view of capitalism and its effect on traditional values.
