Description: Dakar has shantytowns as well as high-rises, streets crowded with cattle as well as Mercedes, and women whose lives have been shaped by tribal custom and male prejudice as much by their cutting-edge aspirations. Faat-Kine is a single mother with two children, two ex-husbands, a pushy mother and assorted friends. She is the manager of a sparkling new gas station, but her success has been hard-bought. Nonetheless, she values her control over her own life, and tries to balance modernity with tradition.
