Synopsis: Fatou is a 23-year-old Italian girl of Senegalese origin. She lives in a suburb of Rome with her mother, who educates her based on the values of her culture of origin. But Fatou is looking for her own identity that combines her black Muslim being with Italian society. Her passion for singing acts as a shield against prejudice – music is what will never betray her.
