Ladies' Turn
In 2009, in Senegal, where "football is king," a women's football street tournament is organized for the first time by the association Ladies' Turn. Despite the passionate commitment of Seyni, the former captain of the women's national team, and of the women and men that fight at her side, the game is far from won. Defying taboos and prejudices, the girls play on the fields for a growing audience. Will they be allowed to go all the way and play the game they love? Through the suspense of the competition and the different characters' stories, the viewer discovers an African and Muslim society in flux.

Episode #502
Dear Mandela
Destroyed homes, threats at gunpoint and high-court action, this battle by three young people to stand up for their rights is a testimony to people power. When the South African government promises to "eradicate the slums" and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. Dear Mandela follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age.
