Synopsis:
In Burkina Faso, in a 27-year interval, two Octobers stare at each other. The first, in 1987, witnessed the assassination of the father of the democratic and popular revolt, Thomas Sankara. The second, in October 2014, witnessed the people take to the streets to overthrow his successor, Blaise Compaoré. In the working-class neighbourhoods of Ouagadougou, the little and the big story are joined in the women’s hut where young Mika lives. Three generations weave the fable of the endurance of a people and their quest for justice, truth and integrity.
