| Your Fate is Predetermined
Would have liked a bit more information on the culture of Senegal people highlighted in this film, for example, why the staining of gums and mouth area. Some answers are in the extra features, for example, we learn that marriage as young as 8 or 9 is acceptably common, as is having 1 or 2 children by age 15. The main plot idea was about arranged early marriages which is a horrendous way to deny a girl opportunities. Islam is no help as it's apparent that one is governed/destined (and should be resigned to) one's fate; usually accompanied by the phrases, "God is great" & "Praise God".
