    This documentary offers a glimpse into the life of Amina, a Senegalese woman living and working in Turkey for the past 7 years. Amina often hides in a dreamworld to cope with the separation from her daughter, who stayed behind with their family. Amina hopes to bring her to Turkey soon. In the meantime, she finds solace in the Senegalese community in Istanbul, her home away from home. (photo credits: Akaylar Productions)
