ATLANTICS IS BEING SHOWN AS PART OF THE SMITH FILM CLUB- JOIN HERE

About Atlantics

In a popular suburb of Dakar, workers on the construction site of a futuristic tower, without pay for months, decide to leave the country by the ocean for a better future. Among them is Souleimane, the lover of Ada, promised to another. 

One night, Souleimane and his co-workers disappear at sea. Soon after, they come back to haunt their old neighborhood by taking possession of the girlfriends they left behind. Some of the workers have come claiming revenge and threaten to burn the tower down if the developer does not pay their wages.
