Haiti, 1960s. A man rises from the dead and is sent in his “zombified” state to the hell of sugarcane plantation work. Today. A prestigious school in Paris for the children of the Legion of Honour members. A Haitian girl divulges a family secret to a group of new friends, without realizing what impact the peculiar story will have on them. Based on Haiti's tragic post-colonial history, this allegorical “zombie” horror was presented at Quinzaine de Réalisateurs in Cannes.
