Summary Félicité is a proud, free-willed woman working as a singer in a bar in the Congo’s capital Kinshasa. Her life is thrown into turmoil when her 14-year-old son gets into a terrible car accident. To raise the money to save him, she sets out on a breakneck race through the streets of electric Kinshasa – a world of music and dreams. Grand Jury Prize winner at the **Berlin International Film Festival**. Official selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival** and **New York Film Festival**. *"Mr. Gomis's cinematic style is spectacularly multifaceted. The camerawork and cutting often have the fleetness of a documentary, but there's nothing sloppy about them."* - Glenn Kenny, ***The New York Times*** *Think High Noon set in Kinshasa and backed by a Congolese beat.* - Scott Marks, ***The San Diego Reader***
