Abstract:Brazzaville and Kinshasa are the capital cities of the two Congos, and as such, the two closest capitals in the world. The two countries signed an agreement, allowing the disabled people to go from one city to another, and trade, with an advantageous discount on customs and taxes. This is why a lot of disabled people started doing so. The film shares their numerous daily boat trips across the Congo river, in order to show the human relationships created on the trips, as well as the commercial issues at stake.
