Newton Aduaka, John Akomfrah, Haile Gerima, Dani Kouyaté e Jean Odoutan : i loro percorsi artistici e personali da Parigi a Washington, da Ouagadougou a Londra, passando per Uppsala e Ouidah. Le loro lotte e il loro quotidiano risuonano con le sequenze dei loro film, i cui personaggi e situazioni sono l'espressione delle loro identità complesse.
