Since his arrival in Cameroon 40 years ago, my dad has never set foot in his native land Benin. What would have pushed him to leave without a trace, to abandon his family and the daughter he had in Benin exactly the year of his "exile" and whom he never heard back? The reasons, I can no longer ignore them. What identity? What origin? It is not just the fact of going back to the sources, but to understand my story… The History.
