Synopsis

The Gurage ethnic group lives in southwestern Ethiopia, in the heart of a very fertile rural area. This tribe is defined by its incredible hospitality and agricultural know how.

Sophie discovers the traditions of the growers of the Abyssinian banana tree. Its edible root, which can reach 40 kg, is a staple food for more than 10 million people, even in times of drought. This culture protects the region from famine.
