At dusk, the spirit world grows bolder. The darkness of the Dakar market where the solitary, slender figure of Pa Kong-Kong dwells, is considered no place for children to venture.

She steps forward determined to reveal a local secret and discovers a new inner confidence.

The sun still rises in their hearts.
