Résumé

Among the Ekonda of Zaire, the most important moment in a woman's life is undoubtedly the birth of her first child. The young nursing mother, called Walé, returns to her parents where she is confined for 2 to 5 years. Chantal, a young woman living in the village of Ikongo will be coming out of reclusion. She prepares a performance of dances and songs.
