The Ivory Coast, at the end of the 1970s, in Youpougon, a working class neighborhood in Abidjan, renamed Yop City, to be “like in an American film.” 19-year-old Aya lives here. This serious young woman prefers to stay home studying instead of going out with her girlfriends. Aya divides her time between school, her family, and her two best friends, Adjoua and Bintou, who only think of hotfooting it to the bush as soon as night falls. Aya classifies these girls, who always find a way to chase after guys, despite their fathers keeping a close watch over them, as the Series H type: Hairdos, Hot fashions, Husband-hunting. Things go awry when Adjoua becomes pregnant.
