Following the tracks of the missionaries, Téno travels from Wuppertal via South Africa, Namibia, Cameroon and Togo back to Wuppertal in order to research about the history of the missionary society. Téno’s film reconstructs the interactions between Christian ‘ethos’, economical-colonial interests and the traumatic experiences of those evangelised. It also picks the issue of the current position of the African church and its political commitment.
