Melé, a bar singer, and her unemployed husband Chaka are on the verge of breaking up. In the courtyard of the house they share with other families in Bamako, the capital city of Mali, African civil society representatives have taken proceedings against such international financial institutions as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, whom they blame for Africa's woes. As numerous trial witnesses air bracing indictments against the multinational economic machinery that haunts them, life in the courtyard presses forward.

A typical courtyard becomes a setting for an international hearing on the abuses of the Word Bank and the IMF on its African clients amidst the daily grinds of African life. Feature and documentary elements merged beautifully in this Mali-set film. Highly recommended!
