As a young man, American Louis Sarno heard a song on the radio that gripped his imagination. He followed the sound all the way to the central African rainforest, where he found the music’s origin with a tribe of hunters and gatherers, the Bayaka pygmies and he never came back. Now, 25 years later, Louis lives as one of them, speaks the Bayaka´s language and is raising his pygmy son, Samedi. Over the years he has collected over 1000 hours of unique recordings of Bayaka music, which he recently donated to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, England. Many years ago, when newborn Samedi became gravely ill, Louis promised him to show him where he was from. Now the time has come to fulfill this promise, and Louis takes 13-year-old Samedi on a journey to the world he left behind in the United States. They visit Louis’ best friend Jim Jarmusch in New York, who recalls their college days and how Louis changed after his first visit to the Bayaka. While playing golf in his office, Louis’ wealthy brother wonders about how their lives followed such different paths. While Samedi manages America quite well, Louis feels like a stranger in his old world.
