Social issues 61'


Fatima Oussoufa, a Comorian caretaker, has been living in Paris for over 20 years; she is a leading figure in a movement for democracy in the Comoros.


By day, Fatima takes out the dustbins, and by night she organises a political revolution in her native Comoros. After two of her comrades were arrested, she decided to travel back to her country to protest in the streets of Moroni, in the hope of triggering a "Comorian Spring".


Behind the mother of a family and the employee at the service of others, the director captures the daily life of a strong woman, whose determination is as great as her voice is gentle. Fatima is followed in her daily life, taking part in demonstrations organised in Paris and then all the way to Moroni, the capital of the Comoros.
