Togolísa describes five days at the Girls Rock Camp in Togo in august 2019. The film addresses the female community, the music, the dance and spirit, the attitudes, hopes and expectations of the women and the girls in Togo. In Togolísa we meet the Diva Mirlinda, the Tatas, the teachers and 50 girls who takes part in the rock camp. These groups reflect the lives of women in Togo, a country undergoing great societal change, and changes in women's attitudes to themselves and to society.
