Summary :

Somewhere on Earth is off to Malawi, in southern Africa. This little-known country, overshadowed by its larger neighbors Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia, is one of the poorest places on Earth. Malawi, a land of plains and highlands, is also home to an immense lake that covers 20% of its territory.

Gaspar, 27 years old, is the proud owner of an amazing, one-of-a-kind guitar. He earns his living thanks to his instrument and his passion for music. Now, after 11 years on the road, he’s on his way back to his native village.

Freddie’s realm is the sky. This young Dane grew up in Tanzania and learned how to fly in South Africa. Freddie, always ready for adventure, loves Africa and is now a full-fledged bush pilot.

Teresa, a determined young woman, is a champion runner. Year after year, she has won one of the sport’s most challenging events, an extreme half-marathon up the slopes of Mount Mulanje, Malawi’s highest mountain.
