Armed with the DNA results mapping out his genetic ethnicity, Puerto Rican hip hop artist Residente (René Pérez Joglar) embarks on a global journey to explore his genetic origins and the struggles of those that make up his blood. Confronted with poverty, war, and disease, Residente treks from Siberia to China, West Africa, and beyond in search of indigenous stories and sounds. He also discovers a universal sense of humanity, and a language that transcends the borders he crosses and the conflicts he witnesses: music.
