Nira Pereg, along with Jean Michel Bolima Amesi, a political refugee from Congo residing in Israel, takes a virtual tour of Kinshasa, Congo while wandering in different areas of Tel Aviv. The work consists of two parts: one includes excerpts shot during the tours of the virtual Kinshasa in Tel Aviv; the other comprises excerpts from studio meetings where Bolima Amesi told Pereg about the moment in which he discovered that the men he was told was his father,  was not his father. The story is told while shifting between the languages Bolima Amesi speaks-English, Lingala, French and Hebrew- thus leaving anyone who does not understand any of the language spoken at a given moment with "gaps in the story-line".
