La Pirogue*

Baye Laye is the captain of a fishing pirogue in Dakar, Senegal. He sometimes dreams of new horizons, where he can earn a better living for his family. When he is commissioned to lead one of the many pirogues that head towards Europe, he reluctantly accepts the job, even though he understands the dangers that lie ahead. Leading a group of 30 men who don't all speak the same language, some of whom have never seen the sea, Baye Laye will confront many perils trying to reach the distant shores of Europe.

      It must be something in the air because I wound up having to work late also and consequently I too will miss the movie. I think the planned area to meet should still be good though so feel free to introduce yall selves without me. Please post a recap afterwards. Gracias.

    They will have the ailses in the auditorium set-up like a "+" so as you walk in there in there will be 4 sections of seats. I'll try to grab us the last row of seats in the first section on the right. Today's outfit is brown hat, red shirt, black slacks & jacket.
