[⏵] The chronology of a yearning: two moving episodes about two people in the Nigerian capital Lagos and their longing for a new life in Europe. Mofe has a day job as an electrician in a factory, at night he’s a security guard. After losing his wife and children, he decides to emigrate – to Europe. A desire shared by Rosa, who also has two jobs, hairdresser and barkeeper. In the jungle of the metropolis Lagos, Rosa and Mofe’s stories develop independently, but have a common vanishing point: the promise of a new life far away from the Gulf of Guinea.
