A "fictional documentary" concerning the volatile topic of female excision, Bintou In Paris tells the story of a young Malinese mother faced with the critical decision of whether or not to excise her baby daughter. Conflicted between relenting to tradition and a desire to do the best for her child, Bintou faces intense pressure from her husband and her mother-in-law when she refuses to get the excision done.
