Since his arrival in Cameroon 40 years ago, my dad never returned to his native Benin. What would have prompted him to flee without leaving any trace, to abandon his family and this child he had in Benin the same year of his "exile", and from whom he never had news again? The reasons, I can not ignore them anymore. What(s) identities? Which origin(s)? It's not going back to the roots, but understanding my story ... the History.
