Synopsis: 

Near Saint-Louis, Senegal, a small village lives off salt production according to a particular community organization: the men delimit the salt fields and the women do the harvesting. But this work division is to the men's benefit. At Ngay Ngay, women are the backbone of this age-old activity. In this uneven relationship, they are exploited by their own husbands. Little by little, certain awareness is emerging, however, and another distribution of tasks is considered.
