Adama and Awa are twin sisters living in Saint Louis, Senegal. They are daughters of a Senegalese mother and a Burkinabé father, who, however, left the family when the children were eight years old.
The search for their lost father remained unsuccessful for years until Adama and Awa, now 25 years old, meet their uncle Drissa. Together they decide to go in search of their lost father and brother Abdoulaye and set off on a journey through Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Burkina Faso. There they meet other families Abdoulaye has created in Guinea-Bissau and Burkina Faso. In the course of their research, they are also confronted with the Mossi culture for the first time. The director of the film will be on site for the German premiere.
