Des Etoiles | 2012
In three cities -- Turin, New York, and Dakar -- we observe the accidental intersections of characters in transit. Sophie, a young Senegalese bride, follows her husband, Abdoulaye, from Dakar to Turin, where he has travelled without papers to look for work. Meanwhile, Abdoulaye has already has left for New York, lured by his cousin, Serigne, and a promise of better opportunities. Abdoulaye's one contact in New York, Sophie's aunt, is en route to Dakar with her son, Thierno, to bury the husband she left twenty years earlier.
