Indochina-war, 1945: French Robert is the only survivor of a massacre in which his brother has perished. Blinded by revenge, Robert rejoins the forces in search of the assassins. But meeting the young Indochinese Maï disrupts his mission.
Guillaume Nicloux gives a very carnal dimension to the conflict through the jungle, the teeming city, the dancing scenes, the opium, the bodies imprisoned in cages ; a way of making the stunned, this feeling of unreality that one must feel in the face of the horror and extreme violence of war.
