Tasie, a London-born African boy, returns to Nigeria against his will but goes missing on his second day. Through his contact with an enigmatic street boy, he gets closer to unravelling the mystery of an intertwined fate with a father he has never met. In this period of identity crisis amongst young Africans in the diaspora, explores the element of spiritual connection with Africa, symbolised by the ancient practice of burying a child's umbilical cord in his native land '...to tie him to the destiny of his people'. Below is an excerpt from the first pages of the film script.
