Take part in a journey to the South, where three Belgian students discover what it is like to collaborate on a better future.
estimated playthrough time: 35 minutes
They’ve just finished doing their finals when Simon, Lise and Emiel have to make an important phone call. On the other side of the line is a man from Gambia. Someone they have never met before, but whom they will work with more intensively than they ever have.
The three students are greeted by a culture that is completely unknown to them. The oppressive heat forces them to adapt to the local lifestyle. They learn to live with what little the villagers have to survive on. TOBAAB means white guy in Mandinka, the villagers’ mother tongue.
