While busy with preparations for Christmas, I found an old letter sent to me by my father. Family photos spring to life as I read this letter and the words of my late father echo in my ears, condemning my homosexuality. I am alone to face his reactions to my lifestyle. Lost in this luxuriant forest of Guadeloupe, I find my way through my memories until my true nature is ablaze and any differences are accepted.
