Synopsis
Produced by Fernando Meirelles (Cidade de Deus), the film is a musical road movie in which the star of Malian music, Inna Modja, sets off of a fascinating journey along the route of the project of the Great Green Wall, a barrier 8,000 km long of trees across the whole continent to face up to desertification, climate changes, conflicts and mass migrations: an African coast to coast, from Dakar to Djibouti, in which Inna duets in every city with a local musician/singer (Didier Awadi, Songhoy Blues, Waje and Betty G) to produce the album that should promote this African dream and give a hope of future to the continent.
