Synopsis:
Serge Kakudji is a twenty-year-old Congolese opera singer, fighting for his ambitions in Western Europe. Kakudji is the first African to sing arias in the pre- dominately white world of opera music.
That alone makes him unique. Still, he seems to hold his own in our harsh and lonesome reality. Moreso, as the first African ever he stands on the verge of a tremendous international career in opera music. This film tells the story of a man bridging the gap between Europe and Africa.
