The comedy While We Live tells the story of a Gambian woman who, after living in Sweden for 30 years, decides to move back to her home country with her son, a promising hip-hop artist. However, Gambia has changed a lot over the years and the move causes the pair to question their sense of identity and home. (91 mins., DCP)
