Italian première

A girl, educated in the US, returns to her country of origin, Uganda. Her skin is lighter, the yellow of the sunflowers is her favourite colour. While the other women make fun of her for her accent and the bus drivers try to rip her off, a kind boy falls madly in love with her. She is fresh, sexy and free, but this emancipation will cause her a wound that heals with great difficulty.
