Home, a short film on Canadian rapper Daybi, is a tribute to the artist and his community. Growing up in Vancouver and later Winnipeg, he began rapping at an early age and then moved to New York and Los Angeles. He currently resides with his son on the Kahnawake Mohawk reserve on the outskirts of Montreal. There, nature and tranquility have given him creative breathing space and, most importantly, a solid, positive, nurturing environment for his 12-year-old son.

Chez-moi, un court métrage sur le rappeur canadien Daybi, est un hommage à l'artiste et à sa communauté. Daybi a grandi à Vancouver et Winnipeg, où il a commencé sa carrière musicale à un très jeune âge. Son art lui a permis de vivre un peu partout en Amérique, donc New York et Los Angeles. Maintenant, il réside avec son fils sur la réserve mohawk de Kahnawake en banlieue de Montréal. La nature et la tranquillité de l’endroit lui ont permis d’avoir un espace créatif, mais surtout, un environnement stable, positif et favorable pour son fils de 12 ans.
