Le voyageur is a free inspiration of Voyage, a poem wrote by Charles Baudelaire. We follow the route of a young African woman, who has left her village,her country and her continent to confront herself with new horizons.
She passes from hand to hand, like a toy, before realizing that her situation, leads her nowhere. The movie is punctuated by a citation of Henry Michaux.
