Synopsis
We were born in the same land, but I was adopted and he stayed behind.
When we fell in love one night in Sri Lanka, he immediately opened the doors of his world to me. During secret reunions, he reveals a thousand and one stories to me, through his social, economic, historical and political situation, his traditions and religions, his heroes, gods and demons. Thanks to him, I gradually feel at home here again.

Then one day, miraculously, the opposite journey becomes possible: back to the country where I've 'always' lived. And so, from the sidelines of his island, he began to film.
