Set in the early 1970s, post-colonial Madagascar, the film follows eight-year-old Thomas growing up on a French Air Force base. But as adolescence grows near, he begins observing his parents and their circle of friends with new eyes, and childhood innocence slowly gives way to a more shadowy understanding of the hypocrisy and racism that defines France’s military involvement on the island.
