Synopsis

Solo, 16, works for his brother Nabih’s taxi-be in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. Despite his shyness, he works as a receveur, which means his job is to yell to attract customers for taxis. Solo lives with his sick mother Tefy in a small house where he can care for her.
When she dies, Solo and Nabih are devastated. Before her death, Solo made the promise he would take her back to her native village. The brothers must bury her there so that she can rest in peace…Yet, Nabih, as always, is against his brother’s decision, which he deems a crazy idea.
But Solo is determined. On the evening of the wake, he steals his brother’s taxi and escapes with his mother’s body, before driving off to unknown parts of the big island. As he is rushing away, Solo unexpectedly meets Tiana, a young and resourceful Burkinabée, who will help him along the way. The two newfound friends are penniless, and with Nabih chasing them, they will have to be cunning to ensure they see the end of the journey.
Our hero’s journey alongside death will help him stand by his choices, and live the life he chooses for himself. He will come out of this journey more alive than ever, and able to become the man he wants to be.
