Notes:
Kine, an unmarried mother of two, is the successful manager of a Dakar gasoline station. Independent and well-to-do, Kine tries to manage the demands of her job, her family and her friends. The movie follows Kine’s activities with an unobtrusive eye, capturing her everyday life. Confrontations punctuate her relatively comfortable daily existence, from a tearful quarrel with her restive daughter to a roadside spat with a woman who accuses her of having an affair with her husband.
