Synopsis

 

In February 2012, the director follows his dad in Dakar, Senegal. The country is in growing turmoil after the president in office decided to stand for a third term at the general elections in 2 weeks, completely ignoring his previous promises not to do so. Although the director's dad is from Senegal, he's been living in Martinique, a French Caribbean Island for 30 years and along with his mum, an island native, raised their 3 children over there. Wally speaks French and Creole but he can't speak Wolof, his dad's language, which is a problem for him here since the one who only speaks French is considered a "toubab", a White Man. Surprisingly though, French is still the country's only official language even though it's spoken by a small minority of the population. So if there's a genuine link between one's language and their identity, what is he then ? That question stays with him as he follows his dad across the country. A country that he knows too little about but to which he feels each time more connected to and that always feels like home.
