Summary:
"Following her father's footsteps, the film maker journeys to the Elmina Castle, that foreboding structure on the west coast of Ghana where millions of her ancestors were warehoused before being sent out through that last exit into the middle passage of slavery. Called by the voices of her father and other ancestors, the film maker returns to the continent the way her ancestors left, at night, by the water, back through the door of no return."--Container.
