Good luck for some, bad for others, 13 is as magic as true love - the kind you would walk through fire for.
Mbaye is happily engaged to his cousin Alima, a young student who, against the advice of both her mother and her friends, loves the penniless and older Mbaye. A man who does not even have a diploma to his name. But the day she meets the young and successful professional Amadou her feelings for Mbaye start fading. Hell bent on getting Alima to fall for him, the confident Amadou does not care that the girl is planning to get married on the 13th of the same month - the day of Alima’s mother’s birthday.

The struggle is one between money and undying true love in this nerve-racking drama, and the outcome remains uncertain until the very end.
