The Absence (L'Absence)

The Absence (L'Absence) Movie Poster

Adama returns to Dakar from France after 15 years when he receives a telegram that his grandmother is ill. But there is nothing wrong with her and the telegram is just a means of getting him to return home. Adama has no intention of staying in Dakar, however, and increasingly feels like a foreigner.

But when he is forced to open his eyes to the realities of Dakar, and the fact that his sister is a prostitute, he must decide whether to continue to be defined by his absence.
