Synopsis: When President Abdoulaye Wade wanted to run for office yet again in 2011, a resistance movement formed on the streets. Shortly afterwards, a group of school friends, including rappers Thiat and Kilifeu, set up Y'en a marre (We Are Fed Up) with the filmmaker to start documenting the ongoing events from an "insider" perspective.
