Maam Kumba Bang is the spirit of the waters of the island of Saint Louis. Its mysterious and mythical presence governs the city and river and the collective imagination has built up a vivid picture around it. But only a few people can say that they have met this divinity. The film, through some accounts, re-evokes this ancient legend which continues to live.
