TEY (TODAY)

2013 | Drama | 1h26 | France-Senegal | BelleMoon Productions

Today is the last day of Satché’s life. Though he is strong and healthy, he knows this to be true. Walking through the streets of his home town in Senegal, Satché takes in the sites of his past as if he were looking at them for the last time: his parents’ house, his first love, his friends, his wife and children. He greets these final moments with great fear but also with a sense of joy.
