In Djougou (Benin) Adjoa, a beautiful and proud woman, has carried a burden on her head all her life. She stands very straight, "as high as possible towards the sky". This weight and these injunctions are at the same time symbolic and real. Adjoa will be able to free herself from them to fulfill her destiny. A beautiful feminist manifesto, with evocative illustrations, in green and ocher.
