By portraying Sylvie Diclos Pomos, a Congolese artist who is an actor, a director and also a writer, the film director questions the issue of writing. Writing for remembering, since people tend to forget a lot, writing as a duty of remembrance; and also, writing as a way of escaping into a better world, escaping from reality that may be cruel. These issues all relate to the "Beach case" that had extensive press coverage in Congo, after a trial ending with all so-called culprits being acquitted.
