    • Synopsis
    • Proud and independent, Mati, nicknamed Madame Brouette , survives by pushing her cart through the pathways of the market in Sandaga. Divorced, she shares with her daughter Ndèye and her friend Ndaxté, who has also escaped from a violent marriage, a dream of opening a small restaurant, a snack bar which will allow them to make a living in dignity. She's had her fill of men and wants nothing more to do with them. But fate has other ideas and gets her to meet Naago, a local policeman, a charmer, a smooth talker, and Mati falls in love again despite everything. Well, who knows...?
      And then one fine day at dawn, the Niayes Thiokeert district (Partridge Hill) is awakened to the sound of gunfire. In front of panic-stricken neighbours, Naago emerges from Mati's house riddled with bullets and collapses to the ground. What on earth could have pushed Madame Brouette to take such extreme actions?... but is it really her who pulled the trigger?…
