This powerful documentary follows the trials, tribulations and dreams of a young farmer who makes and sells charcoal in the Congo in the hopes of offering his family a better future. For resources, he has his arms, the surrounding bush and tenacious willpower. While out on dangerous roads to sell the fruits of his labour he discovers the value of his efforts and the cost of his dreams.
A fathers perilous quest beautifully captured.
