TODAY

by Alain Gomis

synopsis

Today is the last day of his life. He knows this to be true even though he is strong and healthy. Nonetheless Satché accepts his imminent death. Walking through the streets of his home town in Senegal he takes in the sites of his past as if he were looking at them for the last time: his parents’ house, his first love, the friends of his youth, his wife and children. Time and again he hears the same reproach: why didn’t he stay in America, where he would have a future? Satché encounters his final moments full of fear but also with a sense of joy.
