Synopsis

For a very long time, the hawkers who sold newspapers on the streets of Dakar were, without exception, all boys. But, this morning, their domination was challenged. Sili lives on the streets and gets around with the help of two crutches. She begs next to the boys selling their newspapers. Starting tomorrow, she’ll sell newspapers like everyone else… La petite vendeuse de soleil is the second part of the series Histoires de petites gens (Tales of Little people).
