A photo shoot takes an unexpected turn, spiralling into a series of dance-inspired dreamscapes, fading mind projections of historical fragments, and the external, awakening world. Rhythm, colour and movements, being more than just the film's subjects, lead Matata away from prescribed representations of Africa into a new future.
