Set in 1962, this film is based on the incredible real-life story of a Haitian man named Clairvius Narcisse (Mackenson Bijou), who suddenly falls dead on the street but is soon turned into a “zombi” when he is dug up from his grave and forced to work on a sugar-cane plantation. The story then shifts to present-day France, and an elite boarding school for descendants of those who have been awarded the prestigious Legion of Honour. Here, a rebellious teen named Fanny (Louise Labèque) befriends one of the school’s newest students, Melissa (Wislanda Louimat), who moved to France when her parents died in the 2010 Haiti earthquake. After recruiting her into a secret literary sorority, Fanny becomes obsessed with Melissa’s past and culture, and soon seeks out her voodoo mambo aunt to help solve her recent heartbreak.
