After taking a DNA test, Latin America’s most acclaimed artist, Rene Perez, aka Residente, embarks on a global odyssey to trace the footsteps of his ancestors and record his latest album. This self-directed documentary reveals how he grew from struggling art student into the founder of the region’s most influential rap group, Calle 13, and how he became one of Latin America’s most outspoken critics of injustice and corruption. We learn why he left Calle 13 at the peak of its success and then undertook a journey through Siberia, the Caucasus, China and West Africa, after mapping out his DNA. Music becomes the film’s primary focus, framing each destination and informing every conversation.
