Synopsis:
In the beginning of the 20th century, following the First World War, many Flemish farmers emigrated to France to work the land. Six of their descendants, some of whom experienced this exile, share their memories. Whereas this story is all but forgotten, they are trying to preserve and to revive its memory, by delving into family archives and objects. They are becoming the guardians of memory and refuse to let their past disappear.
