While filming his native land, David B. Ricard is entrusted with the task of documenting the creating process of a show of poetry and music across the Canadian Francophonie. This project gives him the opportunity to question the relationship to rooting (land, language), adaptation (poetry, territory) and the process of relationship with the other (team, subject). In this documentary essay, the filmmaker questions his own point of view as a Quebec documentarist. He explores these themes formally inspired by the poem Le Vivant by Carl Lacharité, driving force of the project.
