An "afronaut" emerges from the wreckage of his spaceship in the volcanic crater of Mount Nyiragongo, and descends into the city below. Encountering the people of present-day Goma, he begins to understand what he must do to change the future for his people.

A family in West Africa tells the story of how their ancestor discovered the European explorers — to a European film crew. We get to see how this encounter is still re membered ritually. But do all the claims about the historic event bear a closer look? And to which degree can we trust the filmmaker’s white gaze? This short documentary explores how pride and conscience may affect collective memories.

Stéphane, 35 years old, has recently moved to Brussels. He returns to his hometown of La Louvière to watch a soccer match with his childhood friends, Luca and Cesare. At the end of the game, they manage to persuade Stéphane to follow them to a Flemish nightclub, "like in the good old days". But the exit does not go as planned: Stéphane is refused entry. This is the beginning of a crazy night that will lead him to discover that we don't choose the way others see us.
