Summary:
On the northwest coast of Madagascar live the Zafimaniry people, lumbermen famous for their incredible wood crafting abilities. The subtle and poetic geometric patterns of their work translate the principles that guide their lives. Solo and Jean are two young boys who will build a traditional house like their ancestors did, following the advices of the elders. The Zafimaniry wood crafting knowledge of Madagascar has been proclaimed a Masterpiece of Human Heritage by Unesco, which plans to safeguard this tradition that has been passed down orally from generation to generation for centuries.
