Omar Sy, (star of Les Intouchables) shines in another comedy-drama film. “Yao” is a story about unlikely friendships and finding your roots. Adults and children alike will be able to appreciate this uplifting story. Lost in Frenchlation brings this film to Club de l’Étoile with English subtitles on March 3rd.

“Because it is initially a concentrate of sweet emotion, “Yao”, which is based on a magical duet, is much more than a classic “road trip”. Here, the twists…make material full of intensity and the reassuring capacity of humanity.” – Le Parisien


From his village in northern Senegal, Yao is a 13-year-old boy ready to do anything to meet his hero: Seydou Tall, a famous French actor. Invited to Dakar to promote his new book, Seydou goes to his country of origin for the first time. To fulfill his dream, the young Yao runs away from home and braves 387 kilometers alone to the capital. Touched by this child, the actor decides to flee his obligations and accompany him home. But on the dusty and uncertain roads of Senegal, Seydou understands that while driving towards the village of the child, he is also traveling to his roots. – Plot
