Documentary road movie about Flemish writer and dramatist Rashif El Kaoui, who has been contending with prejudices about his bicultural identity for years. Will an exploration of his childhood offer salvation?

All his life, this wordsmith has been struggling with prejudices about his bicultural identity in the land of his Flemish mother.
