Synopsis

Nirin is 6.

It's the first time he's leaving his native village in Madagascar.

Accompanied by his mother and his two younger brothers, they cross the country on a bush-taxi.

Their mother promised them they would go on a lovely long trip and Nirin is eagerly looking forward to discovering his country.

However, this great journey doesn't turn out the way Nirin imagined it.
