Malian singer Inna Modja makes a musical journey across the Sahel from Senegal to Ethiopia to monitor the
state of the African Union’s project of the Great Green Wall. The acute consequences of severe land
degradation and accelerating climate change are revealed. The film is an inspiring call to action to save the
continent.
