Félicité is a proud and independent woman who works as a singer in a bar in Kinshasa. Her life is thrown into turmoil when her 14 year-old son falls victim to an accident. Whilst he is in hospital she desperately tries to raise the money needed for his operation. She sets out on a breakneck race through the impoverished streets and the wealthier districts of the Congolese capital - a world of music and dreams where she’ll cross paths of Tabu who offers to help her.
