Matondo delves deep into the life of artist, writer, and actress Sylvie Pomos to speak on the importance of writing in order to not forget. She strives to convey the need to write in order to remember, as well as, to escape the cruel and harsh reality the world usually offers. She also stems from the social disruption caused by a famous case in the Republic of Congo (The Beach Case) in which the so called culprits were all acquitted.
