Franco - Madame Brouette
Focusing on the plight of poor Senegalese women, ‘Madame Brouette’ follows the story of one woman who has decided to take matters into her own hands. Single mother, Mati toils daily by selling various goods at a local market, which she transports there via a large wheelbarrow - prompting local residents to dub her ‘Madame Brouette’ Having sworn off men since divorcing her abusive husband, Mati's example persuades her best friend Ndaxte to also leave her thuggish husband. Mati puts her vow against men temporarily on hold once she meets slick-talking policeman Naago and the pair begin a wild fling. Mati grows increasingly aware of Naago's corruption - as well as his penchant for womanizing - at about the same time she realizes she's pregnant with his child. 'Senegal movie'.
