My name is Rosine Mbakam, I am 34 years old, and I am from Cameroun. I grew up in Cameroun following the traditions until I was 27. In 2007, I moved to Belgium to pursue my studies. It was the first time I left my country.
My mother’s name is Mâ Brêh or Mâ, in Bamileke. She is 68 years old and has always lived in Cameroun. She grew up in the bush, where her family and many others fled to escape the French settlers’ repression. She got married at the age of 18 to a man that her parents introduced to her.
This film is a face-to-face that confronts and questions the choices of two women. Two generations face each other, but above all, two women sharing with each other their intimacy, their sufferings and their desires.
