Joy is the fulcrum of the Nigerian women’s community in Ballarò. With her children far away, she divides between two jobs and the church activities every day. Singing allows her to not confront with the silence. Now she is caught up in the imminent arrival of her future husband in Palermo. Settling down also means for her the hope of being able to offer a future to her children and have more stability. Yet, after her marriage, she is again struggling with daily tasks.
