World Wide Cinema - Afro Digital

Nach seinem Studienaufenthalt in Frankreich, beschließt Gito, in seine Heimat Burundi zurück zu kehren – und dort als Minister (was die bescheidenste seiner beruflichen Ambitionen ist) zu arbeiten. Seiner Pariser Freundin verspricht er, sich sofort zu melden, wenn er in seinem neuen Posten und Leben Fuß gefasst hat. Selbstverständlich läuft nichts so, wie Gito es erwartet: Beruflich kommt er keinen Schritt weiter, privat jedoch seiner Jugendliebe wieder näher, was seine französische Freundin auf den Plan ruft...

 
Gito is a Burundian student who lives in Paris. When he finishes his studies, he decides to go back to his country and promises his French girlfriend that he will call for her when he becomes a minister, something that he is convinced will happen. However, he loses gradually his ambition as he's confronted with the country reality and starts going out again with his childhood love. Nevertheless, he will make the best of a bad deal, with the help of the two women of his life.

A delicious comedy.
