This film is the portrait of Delphine, a young Cameroonian girl. Delphine, like others, is part of this generation of young African women crushed by our patriarchal societies and left to this Western sexual colonization as the only means of survival. Through her courage and strength, Delphine exposes these patterns of domination that continue to lock up African women.
