Four women meet on buses towards Bamako, Cotonou, Ouagadougou to Lagos. During their trip, they discover beautiful landscapes of coastal and Sahelian countries. Nevertheless, the trip is a fighter career. They undergo car breakdowns in stifling heat in the middle of nowhere. They face highway robbers and witness flights between passengers. But their worst nightmare remains the border crossing. At different borders, they are exposed to great corruption, violence against women and dangerous traffic. To survive, Adjara, Emma, Sali and Vishaa are forced to stick together and take care of each other. Back in their respective countries, the consequences of this trip will change their lives.
