“There is no science, nor progression of thought without love, without passion, without identification, even when we focus on things apparently devoid of life, such as the evolution of a slope or the genesis of a downpour. You could, perhaps, routinely apply a technique with pure objectivity, but under no certainty could you discover something new unless the researcher were fully involved in the topic that he was trying to investigate.”

SUZANNE DAVEAU traces the outline of an adventurous woman who traverses the 20th century, right up to the modern day, guided by her passion for investigative geography. The film circles between the innumerable world-spaces roamed by geography and the reserved home-spaces that welcomed her private life.
