Small island known as a tourist paradise, Mauritius is full of artists among the most talented of the Indian Ocean.

Filmmaker Sîla, who has travelled around the globe as a musician, went to meet this evolving independent country, where music had a considerable role on « Mauricianism », this fight to unite a people, historically divided in several communities.

An epic journey of the senses, full of emotions, which takes us to the heart of a country in a rare and profound way. Between anecdotes and revelations, three generations of artists and most popular influential actors invite us to rediscover Mauritius.
