In the city of Dakar, Souleiman and Ada are star-crossed lovers: she’s engaged to a wealthy man, while he’s being denied pay by a corrupt construction developer. Souleiman joins a group headed to Spain in search of jobs, but when their boat disappears, all souls are presumed lost. Or are they?

Atlantics is a singular combination of love story, detective story, and ghost story that made its director the first Black woman to be nominated for the top prize at Cannes.
