Young novelist Rama attends the trial of Laurence Coly, a Senegalese immigrant accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her on a beach in northern France. But as the trial continues, the words of the accused will shake Rama’s convictions and raise complex issues in this haunting portrait of the immigrant experience.
Participants are encouraged to watch the films via streaming before attending the discussion.
