Abstract:When 12 year old Tijan gets involved in a London street fight, in which a local boy is hurt, Tijan's mother decides to take him back to their roots, to Gambia. On their arrival in Banjul, Tijan encounters a strange apparition, a boy smiling at him in a mirror and vanishing. Seeing the same boy in a crowded street market the next day, sets in motion a chain of events, with Tijan finding himself mysteriously lost in a foreboding forest. He then embarks on a magical journey that teaches him about himself and the mystery of the father he has never seen. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
