Journey of the lion: Brother Howie (Howard A. Trott), is a Jamaican Rastafari who feels disconnected from his ancestral birthplace of Africa. Following his need to find connection with his roots, Brother Howie returns to his homeland, travelling first through England, then to the Northern coast of Africa, and eventually to Ghana, making observations and unexpected discoveries along the way. As a follow-up to the director's earlier 1983 film, "So frei wie der Löwe [As free as the lion]", this docudrama represents an ongoing effort by the director to present questions of place and identity via the lives and beliefs of a Jamaican family.
