Eight- year-old TimothÃ©e is getting ready to take the plane to Africa, the land of â€˜witches and elephantsâ€™, for the first time. By his side is his mother Aya. TimothÃ©e knows little of his motherâ€™s past. Despite the ongoing war, sheâ€™s taking her son to Ivory Coast to visit her fatherâ€™s grave and reconnect with family. Robin, TimothÃ©eâ€™s father and Ayaâ€™s husband, films them on their journey to the land of Ayaâ€™s ancestors. Simultaneously capturing the awe and wonder of youth with the melancholy of lost time, this beautifully observed doc offers insight into one familyâ€™s search for a sense of belonging that will be familiar to many.
