An autobiographical documentary that is a diary, an essay, and a ballad of one life transposed onto film. The director, Rachid B., tells in a riveting and candid monologue the story of his boyhood, journey from Morocco to Europe and New York, coming-of-age, homosexuality, passion, religion, self-discovery, art, and dealing with his father‘s death. His voice accompanies a visually and emotionally gripping documentary-experimental collage of images, authentic super 8 records, and atmospheric impressions.
