Sous le soleil d'Afrique, l'âme d'une mère ressuscitée par la musique redonne force et vie à son enfant. Instrument de musique africain, le hungu est l'occasion pour Nicolas Brault de signer un conte intemporel où l'élégance de son animation donne vie à une fable sans frontières. Film sans paroles.
