“I want my grandfather to meet before it’s too late, otherwise, I myself never forgive.” – Octavia
Octavia and her friends compared to a Bounty: brown on the outside and white on the inside. Her father, although of Ghanaian origin, but she has never been in touch with her African roots. It is the mirror that her always reminded that they are not a full-blooded Ghent. But the last time Octavia the urge to feel in order to go in search of her origins.
Her grandfather on the father’s side is in poor health and he wants to Octavia, the eldest of all his grandchildren, to meet before he dies. She feels that the time has now come to Ghana to travel and her African family.

Sven was born with a heart defect. In his preschool he underwent five openhartoperaties, but that did not prevent him to have a normal childhood. But a leaky heart valve was a new surgery on his 19th necessary. During this surgery, things went thoroughly wrong: a blood clot ended up in his brain and had far-reaching consequences. Sven ran a brain injury, and the doctors feared that he be permanently paralyzed. Sven laid there, not just up and started an arduous rehabilitation with the support of his extended group of friends. He taught again steps, although his left side for always less remain mobile. His memory and concentration will never be what they have been, but Sven continues to be an eternal optimist.
Svens ultimate dream is his driving licence, so that he no longer must depend on his many friends. It is a severe test, because Sven must not only pass the driving test, by his limitation, he must also physical and mental tests to take.
