Aida and Zina are two farmers living and working in a village in Senegal. For a long time their family and community had been cultivating the land and a livelihood that is modest but peaceful.

But most importantly, it is a film about celebrating what we have in common rather than what separates us.
ANJA WOOT was born and raised in a small country in Central Europe with an Eastern European vibe, so she is basically like a fancy potato-cabbage dish.
She loves to tell personal, intimate stories mixed with an overdose of weirdness, unanticipated twists and a darkish sense of humor that keeps you captivated with laughter and questions like "But why?!". Anja was one of the finalists of the Berlin New Stand-Up Award 2019. She didn't win, but neither did you, so shut up. (Photo credit: @sehrbueno)
