Twelve-year-old Adama lives in a remote West African village. Beyond the cliffs lies the World of Wind, where the Nassaras reign. One night his older brother, Samba, disappears. Defying the village elders, Adama decides to set off in search of him. With the steadfast determination of a child coming of age, he embarks on a quest that takes him over the seas, to the North, to the frontline of the First World War. The year is 1916.



Born in Lyon in 1980, French filmmaker Simon Rouby trained early as an artist, in painting and sculpture, before studying film, first in France then in Los Angeles. His two graduation films, Blindspot (2007) and Le Présage (2007), were widely shown at international festivals. He also directed La Marche (2010). ADAMA is his first feature.
