Synopsis:
Amina (Achouackh Abakar Souleymane), a single mother and practicing Muslim who lives on the outskirts of the Chadian capital of N’Djamena, discovers that her 15-year old daughter (Rihane Khalil Alio) is pregnant. Having been expelled from school, Maria also announces that she doesn’t want the child.

In a country where abortion is severely punished, Maria’s situation reveals the scale of gender imbalance across all strata of society. However, Amina believes in the sacred bonds that bind humanity, or the Lingui – invisible to the eye with its roots deep in the fabric of African culture. Finding solidarity with other women, Amina becomes increasingly determined to support her daughter.

Haroun’s profoundly humane and visually ravishing drama is powered by Abakar’s towering performance as a woman caught between her faith and her love for her daughter.
