A visually dazzling, emotionally affecting autobiographical drama from celebrated auteur Robin Campillo (120 BPM), following a ten-year-old boy as he navigates family life around a French military base in 1970s Madagascar.

At the beginning of the 70s, in Madagascar, a few armed forces and their families live in one of the last French military bases abroad, a relic of the ending French colonial empire. Influenced by his reading of the intrepid comic book heroine Fantômette, Thomas, a ten-year-old boy, sweeps with a curious glance what surrounds him. Beneath the carefree expatriate life, his eyes are gradually opening to another reality.
