Synopsis:
Aminata is 13 and Binta is 8. They are two cousins from sub-Saharan Africa who adore each other. Upon learning that a circumciser is passing through Brussels, Binta’s mother and the family’s elder cousin decide that it is time for the two young girls to be circum- cised. Not wanting to go against tradition, Aminata’s father gives his consent despite his wife’s persistent doubts. This starts up a machine of manipulation and the unspoken, sending the young girls on their way to circumcision.
