    • Synopsis
    • My name is Aya, I’m 19. I love my neighborhood! Here, in Yop City, Abidjan, everyone knows each other. It is always lively, with our open markets, colorful fabrics, funky cafés and of course, music everywhere. My mom, Fanta, is the neighborhood’s most trusted healer. As for my old man, he’s a sales rep for Solibra Brewery, but if you ask
      me, he drinks a little too much of that “strong man’s beer”! My two best friends are Adjoua and Bintou. Those two like to hang out and spend their evenings in the “maquis”, dancing, drinking and flirting with boys. Their ambition, deh*, is basically a C-series career plan: Combs, Clothes and Chasing Men! Me? I want to be a doctor someday. Big trouble comes to town when Adjoua realizes she’s pregnant. Not to mention when Moussa, the spoiled rotten Sissoko boy finds out he’s going to be a dad! How can he tell his old man, one of the richest and most feared men in the whole country?
