A forgotten diary helps one woman uncover the incredible journey and the mysterious disappearance of a group of Inuit, trapped in the world of human zoos of the 19th century. The only known written testimony of an era that humanity would rather forget, Abraham’s diary is an inversion of the colonial gaze. Here the pyramid of races would be at its pinnacle; here the story of Abraham would unfold.
