The awara soup is a kind of stew containing all sorts of ingredients from French Guiana. People say that if someone eats that dish on Easter, he’s sure never to leave Guiana. Using the cooking of this dish as starting point, the film explores the multicultural reality composing this French overseas region. Americian Indians, Europeans, Slave descendents, Laotians, Chinese, Brazilians, Surinamese, tell us how they’re bringing new flavours to the Guianese stew of identities.
