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, is always watching his parents and their circle of expat friends. He gleans what information he can as he builds his world and gradually his eyes open to another reality.
