Synopsis:
Gorette Mawazu's plot of land has been stolen from her. As she is too poor to hire a lawyer, she has been representing herself in the courtrooms of her country, the democratic Republic of Congo, for the last … fifteen years.
At the same time, Bahati Lukwebo, a Parliamentary administrator responsible for the National Congolese Assembly’s finances is trying to maintain his coveted position.
But how do you defend your rights or get elected in a country where civil servants don’t get paid and the electorate is too poor to make free choices?
This film focuses on the people – at both ends of the social ladder- their personal quests and their struggles against a system that they often choose to laugh at, for fear of having to cry over it…
Through them, we embark on a journey through the meanders of justice and behind the scenes of political life in the Congo.
