This film is part of Badewa Ajibades Carte Blanche

You will be captivated by the story of this sleeping woman who gets lost in a dreamlike universe, where reality mixes with fantasy and where the impossible becomes possible. Far from her daily tasks, this magical journey takes her beyond the ordinary, into an unknown and fascinating world, where creativity comes to life through every image and every scene. An illusion that evokes a surreal experience of the self.
