Pierre Just-Marny is, in the 60s, in Martinique, a 19-year-old boy, a kind of chief warrant officer of district, pigeon in an affair of criminal traffic. Blinded by a feeling of vengeance, he surrenders justice himself when he release of prison. He causes a shooting which entails the death of people who had other disadvantage no than to be on his path, in particular of a two-year-old child. In this country, which wears the stigmas of the colonization, the delinquent is going to carry values of rebellion and to be socially legitimized by a disadvantaged population which sees itself in him. He becomes the black panther. 45 years later, we authorize the prisoner Pierre-Just Marny to get back to his country within the framework of a request of parole. The collective imagination recovers in motion.

Visual concept: 

It is a fiction movie based on a true story realized in a intimist way. To say more is premature. In the course of reflection. Real Marny committed suicide in its jail cell at the age of 68. At this time, he was the oldest prisoner of France.
