Synopsis

Haiti. 1971. Dictator François Duvalier has just died and his son, Jean-Claude, prepares to succeed him.

Following a bizarrely terrifying incident, Fanfan decides to hide out at his beautiful neighbor's house for the weekend, where he is trapped between his fear of being caught and the fulfilling of his deepest fantasy.
