My Voice
(Nha Fala)

by Flora GOMES

Before leaving for Europe to study, Vita, a young African woman, promises her mother that she will never sing. A family legend has it that any woman in her family who sings is cursed and will die. In Paris, Vita falls in love with Pierre, a young musician. Full of joy, she allows herself to sing. Vita is horrified by what she has done, but Pierre, overwhelmed by her talent, convinces her to cut a record. The record is an overnight success. Fearing her mother will learn that she broke her vow, Vita decides to return home… to die! With Pierre’s help, Vita stages her own death and resurrection, showing family and friends that anything is possible, if you have the courage to dare.
