Moussa (Djédjé Apali) is a young man from Burkina Faso. He lives in the village where he was born, his parents, his family and his wife, Fatima. Although he prefers to call "Bamako", because it is there, in the capital of Mali, where he met, before getting married and having a baby, Mamadou. The field gives just enough to eat, but this precarious balance is broken lately due to the long drought. Driven by the responsibility to help the family, and after seeking opinion to the elders of his village, Moussa decided to emigrate to Europe.
