Mortu Nega covers the period from January 1973 during the closing months of the war against the Portuguese until the consolidation of an independent Guinea-Bissau in 1974 and 1975. The film begins in the bush with a convoy on the supply road from Conakry to the front. The heroine, Diminga, who emerges from there and the story of her unflagging loyalty to her husband, Sako, a wounded guerilla commander, carries the sense of solidarity developed among the freedom fighters.
