Frustrated by a corrupt system, Yves leaves his home in Cameroon to try his fortune in Europe. But to get there is more difficult than expected. Yves is on the road for eight years. Leaving behind the people who mean the most to him: his little brother, who waits for Yves to take him to Europe. His father, who desperately hopes that his son will send him a hearing aid. And his sister Annie who holds the family together since Yves left. A film about family, the dream of Europe and the impossibility of giving up.
