With the multicultural crew housed by the locals as the ship awaits repair, Ivory Coast mechanic Traoré (the stunning Issaka Sawadogo, from 2012's The Invader) is taken in by Fanny, a young single mother. Their tentative friendship is threatened as he struggles to clear his name. This powerful debut from director Frédérick Pelletier is a quietly affecting treatise on social justice.
