A scientific adventure to encounter the baobabs of Madagascar and the Vezo, a nomadic tribe of the sea...By their sheer size and original shapes, baobabs are among the most remarkable trees on the planet. Relatively unknown in Madagascar, the giants are currently threatened by deforestation. To study them, in the heart of their forests, the French biologist Cyrille Cornu travel by pirogue with his colleague Wilfried Ramahafaly, exploring 400 km of wild and isolated coastline in the southwest of Madagascar...The film chronicles the expedition.
