Astel

Together with her father, 13-year-old Astel takes care of their herd of cows in Fouta, an isolated region in the North of Senegal. Her father thinks it’s time for her to work in the fields, just like all other women. But she prefers to spend every day with her father and the herd of cows. How do these changes affect Astel and the tight bond with her father?
