In the colonial Congo of the 50’s, Godelive, a young Congolese, who was taught traditional customs by Mama Koko, her grandmother, is pulled away from this universe and sent to a Catholic boarding school in Mbanza-Mboma. In this first French speaking school for Congolese schoolgirls, she is being westernized following the wishes of her parents. But the memory of her grandmother prevents it.
