Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. Every night, Madame Coda welcomes the children of sex workers into her home. Garderie nocturne follows the routine of three mothers who call on her services. Adam, Odile and Fatim. They live and work together and support each other to raise their children, in a spirit of sisterhood. The working days start in the evening, and after a final breastfeed, the little ones are dropped off with Madame Coda. During the night, they frequent the district named Black and only go home at dawn, with the babies tied to their shoulders. The very elderly nanny watches over these children even when they are sometimes left at the crèche for longer than a night when an isolated mother suddenly finds herself without means. Thanks to the friendship Burkinabé director Moumouni Sanou has formed with the protagonists, he is accepted in this exclusively feminine network. The filmmaker lets his camera listen to the group of women and lingers on the moments of intimacy and tenderness they share with each other and their babies.
