Mandabi follows the story of Ibrahima, who receives a letter containing a money order from his nephew, a street sweeper in Paris. ​The news spread fast in his neighbourhood with several parties interested in their cut of the money! ​We follow Ibrahima trying to get his money through the absurd and corrupt Senegalese bureaucracy in a bitterly ironic depiction of a society scarred by colonialism and plagued by corruption, greed, and poverty.

In cinemas June 11th.
