An intelligent commentary on exile and migration, Belgium’s colonial history, racism in Europe, the psyche of the colonized and the de-colonized. Kongo lives in Brussels, in the  Matonge  district on which he is writing a book. His editor wants a kind of traveler’s book spiced with ethnic ingredients. However, the writer is inspired by the vision of complex and tormented souls that he meets at all crossings. Kongo follows invisible ways connected to the Congolese history and its ghosts and explroos the possibility to stand upright in this chaotic history.
