THE TREE OF STORIES
That's how Sef begins to tell his stories, ancient stories of men and animals, which have in them an extraordinary power. And while Sef narrates, the river slows its course, the moon grows up over the courtyard and something happens, unexpectedly, in the mind of the listener. Because there is always, in every one, something that a story is able to change. Even the fate of those who have embarked, because of adverse circumstances, on the wrong way.

"I also want to tell stories, as granpa did,” says Sef.

He imagines the courtyard, himself in the middle, people around listening...

“Ask the others before," says Mom. "If they want to listen to them." “And why shouldn’t they not want to? These are beautiful stories, in Africa everybody wants to listen to them."

"This is not Africa, Sef, people have different habits. Maybe they want to sit quiet thinking about their own stories."

“Well, this would be a wonderful habit. And also people from here would love it, I’m sure."
