LA MORT DU DIEU SERPENT

Following a fight that ends badly, twenty-year-old Koumba is deported to Senegal. Having lived in France since early childhood, she now finds herself in a remote village, far removed from her family and Paris life. Surrounded by her disapproving distant relatives and unable to control her anger, Koumba struggles to keep hold of her life as her chances of returning to normalcy dwindle. The director spent five years charting Koumba's journey as she fights against the system and battles her own demons to take control of her own story again.
