« Globe-trotting through the years, a camera and a guitare in my hands, discovering the world, family and friendship through music, i wanted to share how togetherness and slow-life can be… Music is not a sound or a song,

music is what embraces us all and gathers our souls... Playing music is like talking all together at the same time 

to create a sentence that no one had in mind before and that’s the magic of togetherness… I had the chance to meet and share moments with amazing friends of friends of friends… Our songs are like a sound-picture of our encounter and a hint on what happened then… Playing together is a way to be anchored in the present together… this movie is a poetic and musical tale shaping a decade of road-trips, encounters, talks and dreams to count a search of peace, togetherness and present… » Rami Mekdachi
