Savvy business woman Mama Nadi knows how to survive in the midst of the Congo civil war: don't take sides. She sells beers and girls to any man who'll leave his gun at the door. The good-time atmosphere of the canteen and her sharp wits can't always protect her and her girls, but their courage, humor, and hope live on in this gripping drama.
