Synopsis A black cop named Z, Muslim, Republican, originally from Senegal, speaking in English but thinking in Wolof, that is, his native dialect, and patrolling the streets of Seattle on his bike. Seattle is big, strange, full of sinners as well as middle class property-owners, and he is defending the law in a country he doesn´t understand and he is very lonely and he thinks a lot (in Wolof, of course) about his girlfriend and his fear she will be leaving him for another man. Seven days and six nights with Z, answering unusual help calls and covering crimes based on real cases from the city´s police archives.
