A journey through the African continent based on a list of traditional pilgrimage routes. The route follows geographical data which are used to generate image and sound compositions. From a walker's perspective, this data-driven, abstract documentary unfolds from an unnamed location in South Sudan and ends in Marrakech, Morocco. In 6,900 kilometres and 10 countries, the film mirrors a transformation of the walker and his surroundings.
