A group of Acadians from Belle-Ile-en-Mer, France, travel to Canada to visit their “cousins” with whom they share a common history. Descendants of the deported Acadians by the British from their Nova Scotia homeland, they meet other relatives at the World Acadian Congress and walk on their ancestor's lands. Face to face with their brutal history, will they be able to forgive? This film is about exile, the power of memory and finding your roots.
