It's the summer holidays in 1990 South Africa and 11-year-old Boipelo is back at her grandmother's house. As the holidays come to an end, she becomes consumed by the fact that, unlike her two cousins, she can no longer remember her dreams and therefore can't help her granny play the local Chinese lottery.
Mesi's mother has just died. Her grandmother holds the young girl responsible: she should not have conducted a ritual reserved for men. Mesi decides to revisit a folk tale in order to prove to her grandmother that whoever blames her for simply trying help is nothing more than a fool, including God.

The Call of dance is a documentary series dedicated to dances around the world by Diane Fardoun, contemporary dancer and director. Its first chapter takes place in Senegal, where traditional dances are perpetuated with pride and rub shoulders with urban dances carried by a creative and assertive youth. In an increasingly open and connected world, wrestling and ritual dances inspire krump, capoeira and all the other movements closely followed in the image and guided by the musical compositions of Bordeaux producer Julien Villa. From the effervescence of Dakar to the tranquility of the Sine-Saloum delta, via the shores of the sublime Lac Rose, the film takes us on a meditative journey, immersing us in a universe of dance, music, conviviality and spirituality, to meet the human being and the forces that set him in motion.
