A young Parisian woman of Caribbean descent returns to her native island of Guadeloupe looking for the father she has never known.

Directed by Mariette Monpierre, 2012, Guadeloupe

A young Parisian woman of Caribbean descent returns to her native island of Guadeloupe looking for the father she has never known.


In the lush Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Elza desperately
searches for a distant childhood memory of a father she
barely remembers. Elza embarks on a journey to find herself
but uncovers some stark realities along the way that brings
her to terms with her own identity. Based on the director's
true story of searching for her biological father, the film
captures the passion and contradictions of a family in
transition.
