Prince of Paris
A film about Princesse, a 9-year-old Cameroonian, and her father, who leaves Africa to make their dreams come true. The film follows Issah's journey deeper into Europe, but its backbone relies on Princesse's narration. How does she understand his decison to leave in order to secure a better future?
