People no longer know what the medical assistants were : neither the belgians, who created this medical category during the colonisation of the congo ; nor the congolese who have let this portion of their history sink into oblivion. Tracing the steps of her grandfather - formerly a medical assistant, now a doctor - a congolese filmaker uses a family history to portray 37 years of independence.
