Water Once a Day

Alternative title
Water Once a Day: Town Women of Cape Verde
Synopsis
In a poor suburb on the outskirts of the capital of Cape Verde, where one standpipe serves 3,000 people, and then only for three hours a day, Balila, who is 53 and blind, sells water. She has had a hard life, bringing up two daughters on her own. Her story is typical of many Cape Verde women who live in a society where the men have to emigrate.
