The school girl – Instead of going to school, Aminata stays home to work. The teacher, who knows she’s a clever and diligent student, talks to her dad but he is not convinced about letting her go to school. The teacher then asks the Prime Minister to intervene, and he manages to convince her father. When Aminata grows up, she becomes Mayor and her parents recognize the importance of studying.
