owner. Safi, his 14-year-old mixed blood daughter, has always been used
to living with her mother. Now they are together in France and don’t really

learn to know each other and to forgive themselves. But there’s Gloria,
Safi’s mother, left behind in the turmoil of Abidjan and who remains
unreachable…
