This documentary tells the tumultuous life of white missionaries on their journey through Africa. It traces their route, since the arrival of the first of them before colonization, until their return to France, at an advanced age, to complete their existence in a retirement home.
This nursing home is located in Bry-sur-Marne, a suburb of Paris. The local residents call it the “cemetery of elephants”. It hosts about thirty boarders, including Father François de Gaulle, nephew of the General De Gaulle.
