Twelve-year-old Adama lives in a remote village in Western Africa. Beyond the cliffs, the World of Breaths can be
found, where the Nassaras reign. One night, Samba, his older brother, disappears. Defying the laws of the elders, Adama decides to set out to find him. With the unwavering determination of a child becoming a man, Adama launches into a quest that will take him beyond the seas, to the North, to the front lines of World War One. Ultimately, Adama’s love for his brother will open an unexpected way to his initiatory journey.

Adama reveals a new perspective on the Great War. Taking the point of view of a boy from a different cultural background, it offers a different view on history, an outsider’s perspective on one of the terrible tragedies of the 20th century. By
doing so, the film puts forward essential human truths that counterbalance the horrors of the war scenes: family ties, brotherhood, an honest child’s view on the world with its unshakeable optimistic belief in the good. Graphically the film mixes drawing, painting, modelling and 3D techniques which add to the realism of the film.
