Synopsis:
Should I stay or should I go? Through their answers to this question, some inhabitants of Ouagadougou talk about their dreams of leaving for the West, while others express their wish to remain in their country. From this mosaic of reflections emerges a shared desire to free themselves from poverty, but also a fear of not finding work "over there" and of not receiving a friendly welcome. These thoughts reflecting an image of the West as Eldorado are merged to express a single aspiration: the search for a better life.
