Amina works as a dress model in a textile company in Istanbul. She immigrated to Turkey from Senegal seven years ago, leaving her daughter behind to earn money and care for her child. Living as an African woman in Turkey, Amina faces many challenges. She fights against these difficulties, keeping alive her hope of returning to her daughter and her country. As an immigrant, Amina is in two minds-between her realities and her dreams.
