This is about a house in Bamako , an artist’s house. This house is a link to his parents, to his history, to his memories. One day in 2008, his sisters are unlawfully evicted from it. This is also about Mali. A country he has witnessed falling into war, regardless of the tolerance that has been its tradition ever since it gained independence.
