A tree trunk will never become a crocodile

This documentary film tells the story of a Congolese refugee family living in the Netherlands. It puts you in the middle of their daily activities and conversations. What does it mean to live in a family where two cultures meet? How do they maintain their identity in the Dutch society that requires them to integrate? And what does the future hold for them and their children?
