This condensed audiovisual poem, equally moving and mobile, is based on the memories of dancer and choreographer Nora Chipaumire, born in Zimbabwe in 1965. For this film she returns to the landscape and people of her childhood, reanimated in stylised acted and danced scenes featuring local performers. The music was composed by the legendary Zimbabwean singer-songwriter Thomas Mapfumo.
